The Reading Abilities of Beginning Readers of Brazilian Portuguese: Implications for a Theory of Reading Acquisition.
Cardoso-Martins, Claudia
Scientific Studies of Reading, v5 n4 p289-317 2001
Investigates strategies beginners use to learn to read words in a relatively regular writing system, Brazilian Portuguese. Finds strategies used depend on the method of instruction (phonics or whole-word), similar to what happens for children learning to read English. Suggests any differences between children learning to read more or less transparent writing systems are likely to be quantitative rather than qualitative. (RS)
