Comments on the views of J. Morais et al (see record 1988-35331-001) regarding segmental analysis and alphabetic literacy. It is asserted that segmental analysis ability (1) is a corequisite (not a prerequisite) for alphabetic reading, (2) is important to the development of a self-teaching mechanism for new words, and (3) requires efficient coding of phonological information in long-term memory (a noted difficulty in poor readers).
