Relationships Betwen Oral and Written Language
Doris J. Johnson
Research and clinical studies have identified many relationships between various oral language processes and written language. This article provides an overview of findings regarding auditory receptive and expressive language processes, including phonemic discrimination, linguistic awareness, listening comprehension, word retrieval, syntax, formulation, and metalinguistic skills as well as the impact of such deficits on reading and writing. During the course of psychological testing it is possible to obtain valuable information about many aspects of language. These observations can be used in planning more comprehensive assessments of oral language. Suggestions for observations are provided.
