Abstract

When the variables of juncture, pitch, and stress were analyzed for a large sample of oral reading behavior from 7-year-old children, different behavior patterns emerged for children at different stages of reading progress. The behavior of the best readers suggested the hypothesis that they were processing cues at the intersentence, sentence, phrase, and word level whereas the behavior of the poor readers was dominated by part-word and word cues. The study provides further behavioral evidence that the quality of early reading progress is related to the organization of the sequential decoding activity, and implies a processing advantage for linguistic over visual cues.
