These basic abilities are present from birth to a degree, and provide the basis for subsequent language development including phonological and phonemic processing.
Several researchers have concluded that directed instruction in various aspects of phonological processing, and phonemic awareness in particular, may be necessary to prevent early reading failure in some children.
The English language is an alphabetic system, meaning that our written symbols correspond to the separate sounds, or phonemes , in spoken language.
Research confirms that the manipulation of phonemes (e.g., phonemic awareness) is important in the reading process and allows students a clearer understanding of the alphabetic principle.
Until the 1960s, phonology was largely concerned with phonemics , the study of phonemes and phonemic systems, and often considered synonymous with it, especially in the US.
Whereas the five classic vowel letters match the five vowel phonemes of a language like Spanish, they are insufficient to distinguish the much larger number of vowel phonemes of English.
