Compared phonological awareness of younger prereading children and older literate children from different linguistic backgrounds (Hong Kong and Guangzhou children speaking Chinese and New Zealand children speaking English). Found that both orthographic and spoken language experience affect the development of phonological skills, implying a mediating function of phonological awareness in integrating sound information derived from reading and perceiving speech.
