Language Specific Speech Perception and the Onset of Reading.
Burnham, Denis
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v16 n6 p573-609 Sep 2003
Investigates the degree to which native speech perception is superior to non-native speech perception. Shows that language specific speech perception is a linguistic rather than an acoustic phenomenon. Discusses results in terms of early speech perception abilities, experience with oral communication, cognitive ability, alphabetic versus logographic language, phonics versus whole word reading instruction, and the effect of age versus instruction.
