Linguistic Distance and Initial Reading Acquisition: The Case of Arabic Diglossia.
Saiegh-Haddad, Elinor
Applied Psycholinguistics, v24 n3 p431-51 Jul 2003
Examined phonemic awareness and pseudoword decoding in kindergarten and first grade Arabic native children. Hypothesized that because Arabic speakers learn to read in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA)--a language structurally distinct from the local form of the language they grow up speaking--linguistic differences between the two varieties would interfere with reading in MSA.
