Relating Print and Speech: The Effects of Letter Names and Word Position on Reading and Spelling Performance.
Bowman, Margo; Treiman, Rebecca
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v82 n4 p305-40 Aug 2002
Four experiments examined whether letter names at the ends of words are equally useful as letter names in the initial position. Findings indicated that 4- and 5-year-olds derived little benefit from such information in reading or spelling, although adults did. For young children, word-final information appeared to have less influence on reading and spelling performance than did word-initial information. (Author/KB)
