Listening Comprehension and Reading Comprehension in Poor Decoders: Evidence for the Importance of Syntactic and Semantic Skills as Well as Phonological Skills.
Hagtvet, Bente E.
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v16 n6 p505-39 Sep 2003
Studies the relationship between decoding and comprehension in the oral and written modalities. Shows that poor decoders scored lower than average and good decoders on all comprehension tasks. Suggests a high degree of interdependence between listening comprehension, reading comprehension and decoding. Interprets results in favor of the "phonological deficit hypothesis," but underscores the interaction between linguistic subskills and task demands. (SG)
