This study examined interaction between speech perception and lexical information among good- and poor-reading 7-year-olds. Findings suggest that lexicon may operate as compensatory mechanism for resolving speech perception ambiguities. Statistical correction for group differences in phoneme identification eliminated differences in phoneme deletion, suggesting that speech perception deficits play a causal role in the phonological deficit associated with reading failure.
