What Does Nonword Repetition Measure? A Reply to Gathercole and Baddeley.
Bowey, Judith A.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v67 n2 p295-301 Nov 1997
Contends that links between phonological memory and receptive vocabulary should be interpreted cautiously. Explains modifications to nonword repetition task procedures. Argues that further work is necessary to determine if children's phonological memory, and not general phonological processing abilities, contributes to vocabulary acquisition. The work should isolate the memory component from the phonological processing component of nonword repetition performance. (Author)
