Two experiments investigated the role of subsyllabic components (groups of letters forming a single phoneme) for visual recognition of words in a perceptual identification task. Found that identification times were longer for words with fewer phonemes that for words with more phonemes. Findings suggest that subsyllabic components play a crucial role as elementary building blocks of visual word recognition. (HTH)
