Crosson, Amy C.; McKeown, Margaret G.; Lei, Puiwa; Zhao, Hui; Li, Xinyue; Patrick, Kelly; Brown, Kathleen; Shen, Yaqi – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: Morphological analysis skill is the ability to problem-solve meanings of unfamiliar words by applying knowledge of morphological constituents. For vocabulary words from the academic layer of English, the major, meaning-carrying morphological constituents are Latin roots (nov meaning 'new' in innovative). The degree to which…

Ginestet, Emilie; Shadbolt, Jalyssa; Tucker, Rebecca; Bosse, Marie-Line; Deacon, S. Hélène – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: Efficient word identification is directly tied to strong mental representations of words, which include spellings, meanings and pronunciations. Orthographic learning is the process by which spellings for individual words are acquired. Methods: In the present study, we combined the classic self-teaching paradigm with eye tracking to…

Görgen, Ruth; De Simone, Elisabetta; Schulte-Körne, Gerd; Moll, Kristina – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: The role of morphological awareness for literacy development is non-controversial, but it is likely to depend on the characteristics of a specific orthography. Previous studies analysing the role of morphological awareness are mainly based on English samples; thus, it is unclear how generalisable these results are. In the current…

Qiao, Shen; Liu, Yingyi; Yeung, Susanna Siu-sze – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: Research has established the link between morphological awareness and reading comprehension. However, the theoretical mechanisms underlying the association remain unclear. This study examined the direct and indirect effects of morphological awareness on reading comprehension in L1 Chinese and L2 English, with a sample of Chinese…

Fleischhauer, Elisabeth; Bruns, Gunnar; Grosche, Michael – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: When reading a word, skilled adult readers automatically decompose the word into its separate morphemes by processing the word's morpho-orthography. In children, however, it still remains unclear when and how they start to automatically decompose words into morphemes. Methods: To better understand how primary school children learn and…

Dawson, Nicola; Rastle, Kathleen; Ricketts, Jessie – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: Vocabulary development is closely associated with morphological knowledge, yet work is needed to understand the mechanisms underpinning this relationship. One possibility is that because morphological relationships entail systematic mappings between word form (phonology and orthography) and word meaning (semantics and grammar),…

Levesque, Kyle C.; Breadmore, Helen L.; Deacon, S. Hélène – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
A defining feature of language lies in its capacity to represent meaning across oral and written forms. Morphemes, the smallest units of meaning in a language, are the fundamental building blocks that encode meaning, and morphological skills enable their effective use in oral and written language. Increasing evidence indicates that morphological…

James, Emma; Currie, Nicola K.; Tong, Shelley Xiuli; Cain, Kate – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: Morphological awareness plays a crucial role in supporting higher-level text processing. We examined its contribution to reading comprehension in children of different ages and ability levels in order to determine when and for whom morphological awareness is of particular importance. Methods: Three groups of children (aged 6-8 years, N…

Georgiou, George K.; Savage, Robert; Dunn, Kristy; Bowers, Peter; Parrila, Rauno – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of Structured Word Inquiry (SWI; an orthography intervention with a focus on morphology and how morphology interrelates with phonology and etymology) and Simplicity intervention (a novel phonics intervention) on the reading and spelling skills of persistently poor Grade 3 readers.…

Lyster, Solveig-Alma Halaas; Snowling, Margaret J.; Hulme, Charles; Lervåg, Arne Ola – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: There is increasing recognition of the contribution of morphological skills to the development of reading fluency. However, theoretical models and recent research raise questions about how different language skills influence reading development. Methods: The present study was designed to follow the reading development of a large sample…

Rassel, Alicia; Facon, Bruno; Casalis, Séverine – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: In addition to phonological processing and vocabulary, morphological awareness has been clearly identified as contributing to learning to read. While the impact of socio-economic status (SES) has been identified for both phonological processing and vocabulary, less is known about the SES influence on morphological awareness and its…

Gutierrez de Blume, Antonio P.; Katz, Anne; Bass, Jenna – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: Reading comprehension is an essential skill not only during learning but also to successfully navigate everyday life. However, reading comprehension is a task that is challenging even among some adept readers. Thus, in the present investigation, we explored how to improve reading comprehension skills among a sample of middle school…

Flynn, Naomi; Powell, Daisy; Stainthorp, Rhona; Stuart, Morag – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: In England, instruction in systematic synthetic phonics is the first approach to teaching children to read words. There is little research exploring what makes successful training for phonics teaching despite evidence teachers' subject knowledge is limited. There is a persisting problem of underachievement in reading in some regions of…

Schwabe, Annika; Brandl, Lukas; Boomgaarden, Hajo G.; Stocker, Günther – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: The digitalisation of literature is proliferating, and the increasing spread of digital reading devices and the availability of digital texts is likely to make "books on screen" a lasting phenomenon, but little attention has been paid to the consequences of digitalisation for the experience of narrative fiction. While on the…

Cho, Jeung-Ryeul – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: Recent research suggests that diverse types of copying, including pure copying, copying fluency and delayed copying, contributed to children's spelling of Chinese characters and English words but not to word recognition. This study examined the relations of pure copying, copying fluency and delayed copying to beginning word reading and…
