Developmental Psychology, v35 n1 p3-19 Jan 1999
Investigated second- through sixth-grade children's word-reading skills by testing their processing of nonword primes. Determined that good readers showed more orthographic priming than poor readers at more times, and more pseudo-homophone priming at short durations. Determined that the quick, automatic and general activation of this priming information results from precision and redundancy of their lexical representations. (JPB)
