processing: Evidence from young French readers.
The NWF probe is an indicator of the student's knowledge of the alphabetic principle, and measures phoneme segmentation and blending, as well as pseudoword
Decoding was assessed through the Word Attack subtest of the WRMT-R/NU (Woodcock, 1987/1998), an untimed measure of pseudoword
The demographic characteristics as well as means for the verbal ability and real and pseudoword
reading measures are listed in Table D.
Isolating individual sounds in words, as well as manipulating these sounds by deleting the sound from, or adding the sound to, a word to create a new word or pseudoword

One recent study, conducted by Ritchey (2008), explored the concurrent relations among early spelling (real and pseudoword
