The Effects of Global Similarity between Stimuli on Children's Judgment of Rime and Alliteration.
Carroll, Julia M.; Snowling, Margaret J.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v22 n3 p327-42 Sep 2001
Preschool children were assessed on phonological awareness tasks, including rhyme and alliteration matching tasks with distractor items that were either semantically or phonologically related to the target. In both tasks, children found the distractors or the unrelated distractors. Results emphasize the importance of controlling for global phonological factors when designing phonological awareness tasks. (Author/VWL)
