Knowledge of Orthographic Features in Spanish among Bilingual Children.
Estes, Thomas H.; Richards, Herbert C.
Bilingual Research Journal, v26 n2 p295-307 Sum 2002
A Test of Spanish Word Features was developed to determine if Spanish orthography contains graphophonemic features similar to English. Test administrations to bilingual children in grades 1-5 found that spelling features in Spanish were internally consistent (reliable) but varied little in complexity compared to English. There was little evidence that children mastered Spanish spelling features in any particular order. (SV)
