Onset and Rime Structure Influences Naming but Not Early Word Identification in Children and Adults.
Booth, James R.; Perfetti, Charles A.
Scientific Studies of Reading, v6 n1 p1-23 Jan 2002
Assesses the role of the onset-rime structure in visual word recognition. Finds experiments 1 through 3 showed no evidence for the importance of onset-rime in children (2nd through 6th graders) or adults; experiment 4 with adults found onset-rime structure is important in oral reading. Suggests the onset-rime structure may be an important unit in phonologic output. (RS)
