Awareness of the Structure and Meaning of Morphologically Complex Words: Impact on Reading.
Carlisle, Joanne F.
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v12 n3-4 p169-90 Jun 2000
Investigates the relationship of third and fifth graders' awareness of the structure and meanings of derived words and the relationship of these forms of morphological awareness to word reading and reading comprehension. Shows that awareness of structure was significantly related to the ability to define morphologically complex words; some aspects were also significantly related to the reading of derived words. (SC)
