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…

Chung, Sheila Cira; Chen, Xi; Deacon, S. Hélène – Journal of Research in Reading, 2018
This study investigates the within- and cross-language relations between orthographic processing and spelling for children learning to read in languages that share the same Roman script: namely, English and French. We examined these relations in a group of 152 children attending grade 1 in a French immersion program. Measures of English and French…

Kruk, Richard S.; Mayer, Jesse; Funk, Leah – Journal of Research in Reading, 2014
We investigated influences of non-alphanumeric rapid naming on decoding skill growth for regularly and irregularly spelled English words. In a longitudinal study, 52 at-risk and 69 not-at-risk readers were tracked from Grade 1 to Grade 3. Non-alphanumeric rapid naming ability measured in Grade 1 accounted for unique variance in irregular word…

Bianco, Maryse; Pellenq, Catherine; Lambert, Eric; Bressoux, Pascal; Lima, Laurent; Doyen, Anne-Lise – Journal of Research in Reading, 2012
In a 3-year longitudinal study, we examined the relationships between oral language development, early training and reading acquisition on word-identification and reading-comprehension tests administered to a sample of 687 French children. Hierarchical linear models showed that both phonological awareness and oral comprehension at the age of 4…

Deacon, S. Helene – Journal of Research in Reading, 2012
This study was designed to examine the independent contributions of phonological awareness, orthographic processing and morphological awareness on early word reading. English-speaking children in Grades 1 and 3 completed measures of these three constructs, as well as standardised measures of real and pseudoword reading and of vocabulary. Each of…

Kirby, John R.; Ball, Angela; Geier, B. Kelly; Parrila, Rauno; Wade-Woolley, Lesly – Journal of Research in Reading, 2011
The development of interest in reading and its relationship to reading ability was examined longitudinally in 117 children in Grades 1-3. Interest in reading was measured by eight items from the Elementary Reading Attitude Survey. Less able readers had lower interest in reading, but their development was parallel to that of more able readers.…
