The Reading Researcher and the Reading Teacher Need the Right Theory of Speech.
Liberman, Alvin M.
Scientific Studies of Reading, v3 n2 p95-111 1999
Discusses conventional theory of speech and attempts to prove that it is implausible and likely to mislead the reading researcher or teacher who follows it. Offers and supports an alternative theory that is more plausible and less conventional which argues that phonologic structures developed early in life provide a basis for reading comprehension. (SC)
