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…

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…

Treiman, Rebecca; Kessler, Brett; Caravolas, Markéta – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Background: Children's spellings are often scored as correct or incorrect, but other measures may be better predictors of later spelling performance. Method: We examined seven measures of spelling in Reception Year and Year 1 (5-6 years old) as predictors of performance on a standardised spelling test in Year 2 (age 7). Results: Correctness was…

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…

Álvarez-Cañizo, Marta; Suárez-Coalla, Paz; Cuetos, Fernando – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Orthographic learning is one of the steps needed to achieve reading fluency. There are different variables that could influence the formation of orthographic representations. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of the previous semantic and phonological knowledge on the formation of orthographic representations. We used a decrease of…

Carroll, Julia M.; Holliman, Andrew J.; Weir, Francesca; Baroody, Alison E. – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Purpose: Children's literacy interest is positively associated with their literacy attainments. However, interest in literacy activities, particularly for younger children, is likely influenced by their home literacy environment (HLE), which may also be bound up with socio-economic factors, such as parental education levels. Method: In the present…

Conrad, Nicole J.; Kennedy, Kathleen; Saoud, Wafa; Scallion, Laura; Hanusiak, Laura – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Skilled reading involves rapid and automatic word recognition. Through a self-teaching process, phonological decoding during reading is thought to establish the word-specific representations in memory that support efficient word reading. Much is known about orthographic learning during reading; less is understood about this process during…

Bergman Deitcher, Deborah; Johnson, Helen; Aram, Dorit – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Background: The current study aims to address whether boys and girls learn words differently from shared reading of informational books, which are often perceived as 'boys' books'. Methods: Forty-five mother-child dyads (Mean age = 60.4 months, SD = 6.84) were video recorded reading sets of informational and narrative trade books at home.…

Stentiford, Lauren; Koutsouris, George; Norwich, Brahm – Journal of Research in Reading, 2018
This paper presents findings from a systematic literature review that explored the delivery arrangements of school-based reading interventions for struggling readers aged 5-8 years. Databases were searched for published and unpublished studies from 1970 to 2017, which employed a randomised controlled trial or quasi-experimental design. Sixty-four…

Maier, Johanna; Richter, Tobias; Nauroth, Peter; Gollwitzer, Mario – Journal of Research in Reading, 2018
This study investigated the impact of readers' prior beliefs and level of in-group identification on the comprehension of controversial texts. Psychology students from a university that is known for its specialisation on psychoanalysis in clinical psychology read two controversial texts on the issue of whether cognitive behavioural therapy or…

Stoffelsma, Lieke – Journal of Research in Reading, 2018
Background: This study explores the English literacy practices of students in Ghana, in particular their time spent on reading, the availability of reading resources and their use in the curriculum, and the importance of reading from the perspectives of students and lecturers. Methods: Student diaries (6,364 reported hours) and interviews (12…
