The roles of prosodic sensitivity and phonological awareness in second language learners’ reading development

This project attempts to investigate the role of prosodic skills at the word, phrase, and sentence levels in reading development, and clarify the relationship and interaction among prosodic skills, phonological awareness and reading development. Through the comprehensive investigation of Hong Kong ESL students’ performances on phonological awareness and prosodic skills, it will help understand second language learners’ reading process and acquisition of segmental and supra-segmental phonology.
