Muter, Valerie; Diethelm, Kay
Language Learning, v51 n2 p187-219 Jun 2001
Fifty-five children from multilingual backgrounds being educated in English were studied longitudinally over a 2-year period with measures taken of their phonological skill, vocabulary, and letter knowledge. Phonological segmentation ability and letter knowledge proved significant predictors of both concurrent and later reading achievement a year later, irrespective of the children's native language.(Author/VWL)
