AbstractThe ability of word recognition from spelling pronunciation was found to be predictive of word reading accuracy in languages of different opacity. This study examined a similar effect in Chinese, a phonologically opaque language. The performance of word recognition from mispronounced words of 45 children at risk of dyslexia and 51 children with average reading abilities were compared. Further analysis on the learning performance using phonological cues was carried out. No significant results in using phonological cues in facilitating Chinese word recognition in beginning readers were found. Alternative possibilities based on characteristics of Chinese language, and educational practices were discussed.
