Unfolding the Role of Morphological Awareness in Word Learning of Chinese Children

Project: Research project

Project Details


In this project, the possible reasons about why morphological awareness (MA) is important for Chinese children’s word learning will be investigated, which include 1) the association between MA and word reading may be mediated by vocabulary knowledge and/or semantic radical awareness; 2) MA may facilitate the construction of the morphological representation in children’s mental lexicon; and 3) MA may provide extra clues for children to memorize and learn new words. This project can not only further enrich our understanding of the role of MA in Chinese children’s literacy development, but also provide important evidence for modifying the current approaches in Chinese literacy instruction.
