Duncan, Lynne G.; Johnston, Rhona S.
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v11 n5-6 p405-39 Dec 1999
Examines phonological awareness at the level of phonemes and rhyme and relates this to nonword naming ability. Finds that phoneme awareness correlated significantly with poor readers' word and nonword reading ability, whereas rhyming skill did not. Concludes that phoneme awareness may be more important than rhyming skill in understanding reading disorders. (SC)
