CORREA, Jane; PAULA, Fraulein Vidigal de  e  SPINILLO, Alina Galvão. The Contribution of Morphological Processing to Reading Speed at The End of the Literacy Cycle. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.spe, pp.1625-1644. ISSN 1808-4281.

The present study examined the contribution of morphological processing to text reading speed, independently of that resulting from phonological processing in 3rd graders of Elementary School. In addition to morphological processing, measures used to assess the speed in which narrative texts are read orally, working memory, phonemic awareness, rapid automatized naming of objects and letters, morphological awareness and implicit morphological processing were also taken into consideration. The skills that most contributed to explaining the children's performances in relation to their text reading speed were those which involved rapid automatized naming of objects and implicit morphological processing. Results showed that there is a weak and non-significant correlation between morphological awareness and text reading speed, suggesting that beginning readers can benefit from morphological information in reading even before they reach the level of morphological awareness required for such activity. The lexicalization process which occurs during the development of reading skills involves the integration of phonological, orthographic and semantic information, which reveals the importance of morphological processing and rapid automatized naming of objects for reading speed.
