How Do Children Read Multisyllabic Words? Some Preliminary Observations.
Duncan, Lynne G.; Seymour, Philip H. K.
Journal of Research in Reading, v26 n2 p101-20 Jun 2003
Examines sensitivity to the phonological and orthographic composition of multisyllabic words and nonwords amongst a group of English-speaking 11-year-olds. Finds that nonword but not word reading is affected by syllable length, and nonwords are assigned stress patterns which appear to be related to the lexical syllables that were used to construct these items.
