Sheradan Miller: “From speaking to reading: investigating the relationship between prosody and reading development”

In Students by jvnf65


The intention of my study is to investigate the relationship between receptive prosody and reading abilities in children learning to read. There is a growing field of research investigating how the suprasegmental aspects of oral language influence and affect reading ability, and my project intends to help bolster research in the field. Furthermore, I intend to utilise eye-tracking technology to measure reading ability to gain insight in the cognitive processes of the child participants, in conjunction with the more standard behavioural tests in the field.
