Abstract

This study aims to test whether morphological priming aids spelling accuracy; by comparing the scores of four different measures of spelling accuracy from priming and non-priming groups. An opportunity sample of two hundred and seven children aged between five and thirteen years were randomly allocated to either a priming or non-priming group. The priming groups outperformed control groups across all Key Stages in the different measures of spelling accuracy. The benefits of explicitly teaching morphology from the beginning of literacy instruction are discussed.
