Abstract:

Phonological processing abilities specifically include three distinct but
related components: phonological awareness, phonological memory, and rapid
naming. The knowledge of interrelationships between phonological processing
abilities and reading development has led to an improved understanding of
the nature of the reading process. However, numerous studies have produced
inconsistent results regarding the independence of rapid naming in
predicting L1 and L2 word reading. There is also controversy over the
conceptualization of rapid naming. This book aims to rethink theoretically
the nature of phonological processing abilities and their link to reading
and examine empirically the relationship of phonological processing
abilities to component skills of reading competence, with a focus on the
relation of rapid naming and reading skills. The Lexical Quality Hypothesis
and Model of Information Processing are introduced as the theoretical
frameworks for analysis first, and then both the cross-sectional approach
and the quasi-experimental approach are adopted to address the key research
questions. The book concludes by discussing theoretical implications of the
findings, contributions and limitations of the study, and suggestions for
further research.
