Hoot, Bradley – Language Acquisition: A Journal of Developmental Linguistics, 2019
Bilinguals have been shown to differ from monolinguals especially in the realization and interpretation of phenomena that operate at the syntax/discourse interface. Hungarian has a well-known interface structure--identificational focus--which has been widely studied in the theoretical literature but never with bilinguals. The present article fills…

Aadland, Katrine Nyvoll; Ommundsen, Yngvar; Anderssen, Sigmund Alfred; Brønnick, Kolbjørn Selvåg; Moe, Vegard Fusche; Resaland, Geir Kåre; Skrede, Turid; Stavnsbo, Mette; Aadland, Eivind – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a seven-month curriculum prescribed physical activity (PA) intervention (the Active Smarter Kids [ASK] intervention) on executive functions in 10-year-old Norwegian children. A linear mixed model was used to analyze data from 971-1,123 fifth grade children at 28 intervention schools and 29…

Dube, Sithembinkosi; Kung, Carmen; Brock, Jon; Demuth, Katherine – Language Acquisition: A Journal of Developmental Linguistics, 2019
Recent ERP research with adults has shown that the online processing of subject-verb (S-V) agreement violations is mediated by the relative perceptual salience of the violation (Dube et al. 2016). These findings corroborate infant perception research, which has also shown that perceptual salience influences infants' sensitivity to grammatical…

Lang, Christin; Brand, Serge; Colledge, Flora; Holsboer-Trachsler, Edith; Pühse, Uwe; Gerber, Markus – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The aim was to develop, implement, and evaluate a physical education-based coping training program for vocational students. Two vocational schools participated in the quasi-experimental pilot study (EPHECT I). One school received the intervention (intervention group: n = 434), while the other school maintained regular physical education classes…

Rojczyk, Arkadiusz – Language Acquisition: A Journal of Developmental Linguistics, 2019
Word segmentation in L2 is not as optimal as in L1 because many, though not all, cues to signal word boundaries appear to be largely language-specific. Native English listeners use short-lag versus long-lag VOTs in segmenting pairs such as "Lou spills" versus "loose pills." Polish contrasts negative versus short-lag VOTs, so…

Dodillet, Susanne – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
A global demand for excellence programs and elite education for pupils identified as specially gifted has emerged in recent decades. This article provides preliminary insights into the ongoing efforts to integrate special tracks for "the best" with the egalitarian ideal of A School for All, which remains highly influential in the Swedish…

Li, Liping; Wu, Xinchun; Cheng, Yahua; Nguyen, Thi Phuong – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Background: The aim of this longitudinal study was to examine the relationship between character reading and spelling and to explore the role of reading-related skills in Chinese literacy. Methods: A test battery that included measures of morphological awareness (homophone awareness and compound word awareness), orthographic awareness, rapid…

Schmader, Christopher; Horton, William S. – Discourse Processes: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Speakers in conversation often tailor referring expressions in ways that reflect beliefs about the knowledge and perspectives of specific addressees. In this study we examined whether such audience design can influence speakers' conceptualizations of referents beyond the conversation. In a Wizard-of-Oz paradigm, participants identified novel…

Zhang, Dongbo; Koda, Keiko; Leong, Che Kan; Pang, Elizabeth – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Background: While much is known about how morphological awareness (MA) contributes to reading development, little attention has been paid to how reading may conversely affect MA development, particularly in readers of Chinese in a bilingual/multilingual setting. Methods: The study adopted a cross-lagged panel design. Young bilingual readers of…

Groen, Margriet A.; Veenendaal, Nathalie J.; Verhoeven, Ludo – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Text reading prosody and reading comprehension are related, but both rely on decoding. The aim of the current study was, therefore, to disentangle the contribution of decoding from that of prosody skills. We examined the performance on text reading prosody and speech prosody in fifth-grade children with age-appropriate decoding but weak…

Goekler, Susan; Auld, M. Elaine; Birch, David A. – State Education Standard, 2019
Health education offers a natural curricular home for important life skills and ways students can optimize physical, social, and emotional health. Although many schools have implemented social and emotional learning (SEL), health education provides a broader framework by encompassing the connections between physical and emotional health and the…

Silva, Macarena; Cain, Kate – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
We examined the quality of 4- to 6-year-olds' production of narratives from picture sequences. Children (N = 81) first viewed a narrative picture sequence and then completed the narrative production task in each of two orders: either before or after answering a set of questions about the core elements of the story. Narratives elicited after…

Mimeau, Catherine; Laroche, Annie; Deacon, S. Hélène – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Objective: Our objective was to examine the role of semantics in the relation between syntactic awareness and contextual facilitation in word reading. Methods: Grade 3 children (N = 77) completed a syntactic awareness task in which we manipulated the possible reliance on semantic information. They also completed a task of word reading in isolation…

Bar-Kochva, Irit; Nevo, Einat – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Phonological awareness has been found to be strongly related to spelling. Findings on the relations between rapid-naming and spelling are less consistent and have been suggested to be shared with speed of processing. This study set out to examine these relations in spelling and reading of Hebrew. Children attending the regular educational system…

Murray, Bruce A.; McIlwain, Mary Jane; Wang, Chih-hsuan; Murray, Geralyn; Finley, Stacie – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Learning irregular words involves mental marking of irregular letters in the spelling, a process not fully understood. In a within-subjects experiment, we manipulated the type of scaffolding given to beginning readers to evoke mental marking. We pretested to sort 103 kindergarten and first-grade participants into sequential decoders, who decode…
