The Contribution of Phonological and Orthographic Processing Skills to Adult ESL Reading: Evidence from Native Speakers of Farsi.
Nassaji, Hossein; Geva, Esther
Applied Psycholinguistics, v20 n2 p241-67 Jun 1999
Investigated the role of phonological and orthographic processing skills in second-language reading of 60 native-Farsi-speaking English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) graduate students. Three types of ESL reading variables were used: reading and comprehension, silent reading rate, and ability to recognize individual words. Efficiency in phonological and orthographic processing contributed significantly to individual differences on the measures. (Author/VWL)
