Lefrancois, Pascale; Armand, Francoise
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v16 n3 p219-46 Apr 2003
Explores the role of phonological and syntactic awareness of 9- to 11-year-old Spanish-speaking learners of French in four components of second-language reading. Finds (1) phonological tasks in L2 better explain decoding; (2) word recognition through the visual route is best explained by corresponding ability in L1; (3) sentence comprehension is best explained by oral competence in L2; and (4) text comprehension is explained by ability in L1.
