Introduction to Special Issue on Morphology and the Acquisition of Alphabetic Writing Systems.
Mann, Virginia A.
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v12 n3-4 p143-47 Jun 2000
Introduces the articles in the special issue as sharing a concern with the role of morphological skills in the learning of alphabetic orthographies. Discusses how the articles offer a cross-section of different perspectives, techniques and populations. Notes several pieces of evidence that morphological awareness, while related to phoneme awareness, is not always secondary to phonological awareness. (SC)
