The book presents the research and results of a European Network on Word Structure
This paper is designed to reconstruct the height of the surface of the object by using a single word structure
, but a laser can only reproduce the height of the laser line (Figure 7).
* Word structure
demand (decoding demand of words and the number of syllables in words);
The spelling approximations in the current study revealed that even very poor spellers encoded morphological knowledge in their spellings and challenges assumptions that poor spellers fail to encode details of word structure
The rest of the chapters deal with various linguistically salient features: the sound systems; word structure
; nouns; verbs; grammatical relations; valency-changing strategies; evidentiality; genders and classifiers; serial verb constructions; sentence formation; stylistic features of Amazonian languages (including numeral systems, speech styles, male and female speech, and mixed languages such as Island Carib); and finally, a succinct summary of the book called the "treasures of Amazonian languages." Although Aikhenvald intends this final chapter as a revelation of what still remains to be investigated, it is rather more a state-of-the-art summary, without specific topics being earmarked as those requiring further study.
NetWordS ("The European Network on Word Structure
. Cross-disciplinary approaches to understanding word structure
in the languages of Europe") is a 4-year research networking programme (2011-2015) promoted by the European Science Foundation, gathering 16 European countries and over 50 national laboratories and scientific institutions.
Relevant character of the work is conditioned by the fact, that the level of development of the word structure
determines not only the presence of speech underdevelopment of cortical genesis, but also determines the specificity and the degree of its manifestation.
It involves reading instruction that is focused on phonemic awareness and segmentation skills, alphabet principle of sound and symbol knowledge, word structure
and analysis knowledge (phonics), reading accuracy and fluency, and spelling.
Teaching Reading Sourcebook includes a section on word structure
