The Role of Vowels and Context in the Reading of Highly Skilled Native Arabic Readers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The role of context and vowels among highly skilled native Arabic readers was investigated in this study. Sixty-eight high school participants were selected after reading a list of isolated words. Only the highly skilled students participated in this study. Each participant individually had to read aloud vowelized and unvowelized paragraphs, and vowelized and unvowelized lists of words. The results showed that vowels and context were significant facilitators of word recognition in Arabic orthography.
