Sense and Sensitivity in Phonological Memory and Vocabulary Development: A Reply to Bowey (1996).
Gathercole, Susan E.; Baddeley, Alan D.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v67 n2 p290-94 Nov 1997
Maintains that Judith Bowey's data and theoretical evaluation undermine her conclusion that phonological short-term memory does not mediate long-term phonological learning. Her assessment of nonword repetition may have reduced the measure's reliability, leading to a low association with vocabulary and unexpectedly high performance. Her assumptions regarding phonological processing tasks and their underlying skills deny their complexity and multiple underpinnings. (Author/KB)
