Summary

The purpose of this study was to determine the strength of the relationship between syllabication ability and reading comprehension. Pre- and posttests using the syllabication and comprehension subtests of the Stanford Diagnostic Reading Tests were administered to 275 middle school children involved in corrective and developmental reading programs. The results of the study indicate that there is a slight correlation (.13) between gain in syllabication ability and gain in reading comprehension, but it is suggested that it may not be great enough to justify teaching syllabication rules in an attempt to improve reading comprehension. It is recommended that experimental studies be conducted to determine if instruction in syllabication improves word recognition ability and/or vocabulary. (LL)
