The methodology of the study required a three step process. First, all of the words of the Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary Reading Vocabularies list were typed into a computer in grade level format. Phonograms from the Durrell-Murphy Phonogram List were entered in the computer. The graded word lists and the phonogram files were then combined by the computer to create graded word lists based on the occurrence of phonogram letter sequence. The second step involved a hand processing of the computer lists to match letter sequen ces representing the phonograms with consistent phonogram sounds. The final step of the study provided a word count for the occurrence of each phonogram at each grade level and a total word count for the frequency of occurrence of each phonogram across grades. A list of phonograms that produced fewer than five words across grades was prepared. The completed phonogram-based word list is comprised of 5,943 words with 232 phonogram entries. Sixty phonograms or 21 per cent of the Durre 11 -Murphy Phonogram List were omitted because the frequency of words in which these occurred was fewer than five words. TABLE OF CONTENTS CHAPTER PAGE I.

On the assumption that a child should learn to read first those words that will be encountered most frequently in connected prose and later those words encoun tered less frequently, many word lists are developed from word counts of spo ken and printed language. In these lists frequency of occurrence in speaking or writing is the criterion for placing any word at a "high" or "low" level on the list. Examples of such word lists are the Dolch (1941) Sight Vocabulary list, the Carroll et al. (1971) American Heritage Word Frequency Book and the Harris and Jacobson (1972) Basic Elementary Reading Vocabularies list. Each of the many published word lists available is based on a clear rationale and is scientifically derived by either hand or computer counts from a specified data base. They are used in many ways, both to study and to construct materials in which meaning or semantics is important. In a contrasting approach, teaching materials directed at what is commonly called "phonics instruction", that is, materials constructed to teach word recognition through phonological principles, seldom have an identifiable scientific basis. Series of phonics workbooks often provide teachers with the list of words used in the series but do not provide a theoretical base for the selection of those words. It is probably fair to say that the selection rests mainly on the judgement of the authors of the material, who use their knowledge of children at various age levels to determine which words should be placed "high" or "low" on phonological word lists. Although their subjective judgement may be accurate enough to provide usable teaching materials, there is seldom scientific evidence to support their choice of words. That scientifically derived lists based on phonological principles are needed is increasingly evident. Such well known researchers as Gibson (1962, 1976) a perception specialist, Venezky (1967, 1972) a spelling spe cialist and Durrell and Wylie (1968) reading specialists have provided evi dence that orthographic units beyond the letter that represent the consistent sound-symbol patterns of English are used most by , readers and spellers in basic word processing activities. In 1962 Gibson et al. proposed that the regularities in spelling-to-sound patterns employed by readers are letter clusters. It was suggested: "...that the proper unit for analyzing the process of reading (and writing) is not the alphabetical letter but the spelling pattern which has an invariant relationship with a phonemic pattern. This may be of great importance for children's learning to read and write." (1962, p.555) Although Gibson does not specify the types of spelling patterns she considers most important, her 1962 study focussed on the vowel-consonant combination in letter clusters and the significance of this unit to ease of pronunciation. 3 The need to continue to enhance experiences of observing spelling patterns is acknowledged by Gibson (1976). Venezky's spelling research (1967) has shown that spelling-to-sound correspondences in English are much more regular than many people have assumed. Moreover, with the exception of patterns that occur infrequently in early reading material, good readers very early develop the ability to respond with appropriate pronunciations to these patterns when they appear in synthe tic words. (Venezky et al. 1972) It is the consistent sound symbol pattern of the phonogram that Durrell and Wylie (1968) stress as the recognition unit of highest utility for beginning readers. If orthographic clusters in words are so important to reading and spelling activities, it seems evident that some scientifically derived lists would be useful for instruction in both of these subjects. To produce the required lists it should only be necessary to reana lyze existing semantics-based graded word lists into new word lists in which words of each grade are grouped by designated orthographic components. Specific Purpose of the Study The purpose of the study was to reanalyze the graded word lists of the Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary Reading Vocabularies list according to phonogram components to provide a phonogram-based word list in graded format. 4 Design of the Study  Materials; The study required the use of the Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary Reading Vocabularies list (1972) and the Durrell-Murphy  Phonogram List (1972), which is based on the frequency of occurrence of phono grams drawn from the Vocabulary of Rhymes in Webster's Seventh New Collegiate  Dictionary (1965). •?* Methods: The methodology of the study required a three-step process. In the first step, all of the words of the Harris-Jacobson list were typed into a computer word processor in their grade level format. Separate files representing phonograms from the Durrell-Murphy phonogram list were created in the computer. The graded word lists and the phonogram files were then combined by the computer to create graded word lists based on the occurrence of letter sequences called phonograms. The initial output, then, consisted of all words in the Harris-Jacobson list at each grade level that contained the sequences of letters representing the phonograms entered. These initial printed lists could not constitute the final product since the word processor cannot recognize phono logical boundaries. For example, the word "heroine" would be assigned by the computer to the Grade Six list of oin words but would be dropped from the final list because in the word "heroine" the oin cluster is not pronounced as it is pronounced in such words as coin or loin. The second step of the study, then, involved a hand processing of the 5 computer lists to match letter sequences representing the phonograms with con sistent phonogram sounds. Only those words that contained what was believed to be the most common phonogram sounds were included in the graded phonogram word list. A final step involved further analysis of the lists. It should perhaps be added that the completed list is not considered to be a definitive list. It is confined to the phonogram as defined below. Definition of Terms Only one definition is required for the study. For the purpose of this study a phonogram as defined in A Dictionary of Reading and Related  Terms, the official International Reading Association publication, is "a graphic sequence comprised of a vowel grapheme and an ending consonant grapheme (as the spelling of -ed in bed, red, fed). (Harris and Hodges, 1981). It is assumed that this definition includes the VCV sequence in which the final vowel is "silent" (as the spelling of -ite in bite, kite, site). Limitations of the Study The study is seen as limited in two important ways. 1) The study is confined to phonograms as they occur in only one published word list, which has its own specified limitations. Other semantics-based word lists would certainly yield a different set of word lists. 6 2) The study was confined to letter clusters that occur as phono grams, that is, as pronounceable clusters without semantic significance. It did not differentiate letter clusters spelled in the same way as phonograms but having a semantic function. Clusters like im and in function as pho nograms in such words as brimming and finish but have a semantic function in such words as import and inability. The list is confined to the phonogram as a phonological unit in its most common pronunciation. Significance of the Study The study is seen as having significance in both its product and its processes. The value of the expected product in providing a scientific base for "phonics" instruction has already been commented on. It is expected as well that the processes used may have an influence on the construction and design of future word lists. Existing graded word lists may be reanalyzed in a similar way for orthographic patterns represent ing other phonemic elements. Organization of the Thesis The thesis is organized into four chapters. Chapter one presents the problem. Chapter two reviews the related literature. Chapter three describes the procedures followed to develop the graded phonogram-based word lists. Chapter four summarizes the study and samples of the projected word list appear as an appendix. 7 CHAPTER II REVIEW OF THE RELATED LITERATURE For a time Gestalt psychologists influenced reading instruction when they suggested that word recognition practice should be based on a "whole word" technique on the assumption that subpatterns within words would gra dually be internalized by the naive reader and used to recognize "new" words. Generally speaking, however, reading specialists have agreed that most children must be taught how to analyze words into appropriate pronunciation units and then to "blend" these units into whole words. Some writers and com mercial programs have advised a letter by letter approach (as in c-a-t); others have advised an initial syllable approach (as in ca-t); and still others suggested a phonogram approach (as in c-at). Although some evidence was available as early as 1928 about the value of the phonogram as a pronun ciation unit, only recently has any quantity of evidence become available to support its value. Research now seems to support the phonogram as the unit of greatest utility in word recognition. Early Evidence and Opinion About the Value  of the Phonogram in Word Analysis Programmes Early statements about the value of the phonogram in word analysis programmes were based on analyses of their occurrence in beginning reading material. Gates' (1928) study of the relative frequency of letter clusters in words, although not always formally cited by later writers, probably influenced statements made by other authors soon after. Gates analyzed the frequency of occurrence of a variety of letter clusters including the CC, CV and VC, VCC forms in 3,000 words from first and grade reading material. His data led him to suggest that attention to many of these units in reading instruction would prove unprofitable. However, some combinations were considered to be of value because of both frequency of occurrence and consistent sound-symbol relationships. Gates suggested that: Elements like in, ing, er, an, en, ed,oter, and and ight which so commonly correspond to spoken syllables ... are more readily connected with spoken sounds and the associations thereby built up. (1928, p.153) He listed a total of 27 letter clusters that were very useful because of their frequency of occurrence and invariance of pronunciation. Nineteen, or approximately seventy per cent of these were of the VC and VCC form (i.e. phonogram). Although McKee (1948) accepted Gates' judgement that phonograms were useful in word analysis programmes, he pointed out that the use of the phono gram might be limited by variance of pronunciation, infrequency of occurrence and the beginning reader's word attack style, which typically showed a con centration on beginning and ending letters. However, he did list specific phonograms to be taught. Still later, Durrell (1956) agreed, although he stressed that fre quency of occurrence of phonograms in instructional reading material should form the basis for determining the elements to be taught. He advised specifi cally against the practice of teaching phonograms using unfamiliar words, that is, words not in a child's speaking vocabulary. Dolch, on the other hand, subscribed to the letter by letter phonics 9 approach and stated: We can say that phonogram phonics is only a means to an end. The end is better teaching of letter phonics and also learning of habits of word analysis that will be continually and widely useful. (1960, p.294) Dolch, nevertheless, did prepare a list of phonograms regarded as most common to phonogram lists, while warning of the limitations of phonogram recognition in word analysis practice. In 1961, the suggestion was made by Russell that phonogram recogni tion was an integral part of the child's development in reading polysyllable words. He suggested that while analysis of monosyllable words in early reading required skill with individual letters, blends and digraphs, later: In the high second or low third grades where polysyllable words begin to constitute more of the basic vocabulary, ability to detect known parts, phonograms such as light and ound and the syllables of words becomes more valuable, (p.314) Obviously, many reading specialists until 1961 were in favour of at least some use of phonograms in reading programmes but very little research evidence was available other than the Gates 1928 study of their frequency of occurrence. Recent Evidence About Letter Clusters  and Their Value in Word Analysis More recently, carefully designed research has focussed on the unit that the reader uses in word analysis activities in the reading process. Evidence has begun to appear in the perception, spelling and reading litera ture about the important of letter clusters with consistent sound-symbol rela tionships. 10 Evidence From Perception Research Working from a perception viewpoint, Gibson has suggested that a reader utilizes not the letter or the whole word when analyzing words but letter clusters comprising spelling-to-sound correspondences. Gibson, Pick, Osser and Hammond (1962) compared skilled readers' visual discrimination and perceptual matching of monosyllabic pronounceable and unpronounceable pseudowords. College students were presented with brief tachistoscopic exposures to lists of pseudowords constructed by exchanging initial and final consonant clusters and containing either high or low spelling-to-sound correlations (ex. CLATS - TSACL). High spelling-to-sound correlations were shown to be a significant factor in the perception of pseudowords. It is to be noted here that although no actual pronunciation was required of the students the combinations of potentially pronounceable units facilitated the task. In another experiment, Gibson, Pick and Osser (1963) used the same procedure to present monosyllabic familiar words and pronounceable and unpro nounceable trigrams as well as four and five letter pseudowords of both pro nounceable and unpronounceable forms (ex. RAN, NAR, NRA : SLAND, NADSL) to examine the stage at which early readers finishing first or third grade begin to respond to spelling patterns as units of pronunciation. First graders read and spelled orally the familiar words best but read the pronounceable trigrams significantly better than the unpronounceable patterns. The longer pseudo-words were read poorly with no differentiation shown for pronounceability, probably a reflection of reading ability. The third graders read all of the three letter combinations equally well but pronounceability was shown to be a 11 factor in the reading of longer pseudowords. The findings of these early studies led Gibson to conclude: The fact that a child can begin very early to perceive regularities of correspondence between the printed and spoken patterns and transfer them as units, suggests that the opportunities for discovering the correspond ence between patterns might well be enhanced in programmed reading materials. (1965, p.1072) It is an interesting fact that Gibson later reviewed her thinking about her use of the term "pronounceability" in the perception of units in word recognition and modified her statements to accommodate findings from a study of deaf subjects (Gibson, Shurcliff and Yonas, 1970). The same pseudo-words of high or low pronounceability were presented tachistoscopically one at a time on a screen for 100 milliseconds to 34 congenitally deaf and 34 hearing college students. The deaf students made more errors overall in recording the pseudowords but the difference favouring the pronounceable units was just as significant for the deaf as for the hearing students. Gibson et al. concluded that the importance of pronounceability in processing units was seriously weakened by the results of this study and concluded that "the mapping relation to sound is not essential". It should be stated, however, that there is really no reason entirely to discard the pronounceability notion. The fact that deaf subjects respond to visual patterns should not lead us to suppose that hearing subjects do not use the visual patterns as phonological units. This is implied by Gibson et al. in the statement: 12 An intelligent deaf reader does master and use the regular spelling patterns of the language in processing graphic material and is faciliated by their presence. The redun dancy contributed by invariant mapping to speech sounds may well make it easier for the hearing child to pick up the common spelling patterns and regularities as he learns to read, but clearly it can be done without this. (1970, p.71) In an additional statement, Gibson (1976) suggested that there are many repetitive patterns in English representing consistent pronunciation units which are generalized by the reader and facilitate the reading process. For example, the spelling patterns shown in fat-fate and bit-bite are suggested to be "easily classified and contrasted". While the term "phonogram" was not used to designate the spelling-to— sound patterns used as units of recognition in pronounceable words and pseudo-words, it should be noted that the phonogram pattern as defined in this study was the basic element in the pronounceable pseudowords and trigrams used in the Gibson studies. Evidence from Spelling Research An examination of the spelling literature shows that research in the field of spelling, aided by the computer, also began in the 1960's to study recurring patterns of print within words and to draw conclusions about their significance in the interaction between orthographic patterns and phonological patterns. Venezky (1967) contended that English contains two basic sets of pat terns. The first, he said, pertains to the allowable letter sequences or 13 orthographic regularities; the second contains those patterns which relate spelling-to-sound. After a very thorough analysis of orthographic regularities, including consonant patterns, vowel patterns, vowel + consonant(s) patterns and vowel + consonant + vowel patterns, he was able to describe the extent to which graphemic environment determined vowel pronunciation in both mono syllable and polysyllable words. He pointed out that for polysyllables morphemic structure also influenced pronunciation significantly. He added, however, a statement about the beginning reader that can be assumed to be a reference to the reading of monosyllables. Learning to read is to a great extent learning to relate orthographic forms to already existing phonological forms. The more that reading pedagogy can take advantage of this fact, the more successful the teaching of reading will be. (1967, p.105) He tested this conclusion in a 1972 study. (See below) Evidence From Reading Education Research Evidence about the value of the phonogram in word analysis is of two types; (1) Studies of application and (2) Studies of frequency of occurrence of phonograms in common words. Studies of application. Evidence has been collected about the value of the phonogram in word recognition. 14 The blending methods employed by first graders to decode unfamiliar one syllable words was investigated by Canham et al. (1966) to determine whether an initial syllable (as in ca-t) or a final phonogram (as in c-at) would serve as a more useful unit in word analysis when transfer was made to unknown words. The children were asked to respond to a total of 139 words representing all of the possible phonetically "pure" combinations of three letter words when paired according to initial syllable or phonogram similari ties (i.e. man-map; cap-map). Transfer to the paired word was expected within ten seconds after the examiner prompted with: "If this says 'man', this says ." or alternately "If this says 'cap', this says .". The phonogram approach was found to be significantly more successful in producing correct pronunciation regardless of the phonics method employed by the class-room teacher. The utility of the phonogram as a recognition unit used by first gra ders was also supported by Wylie (1967) in an elaboration of the Canham study. A thirty-two item test consisting of sets of five short vowel phonograms in which only the vowel varied was used to determine whether 230 first graders showing normal intelligence and reading progress would respond better to pho nogram or separate vowel identification. From a display such as (ed id od ud ad) the child was asked to circle the phonogram pronounced. The next day the same displays were used again and the child was asked to circle the vowel sound pronounced. All children identified the phonogram sound significantly better than the vowel sound. Wylie strongly suggests that the recognition unit is the phonogram rather than the separate vowel. In discussing phonics problems in beginning reading Durrell (1968) 15 stated: Our studies indicate that the phonogram is the unit most children depend upon in recognizing words in beginning reading. The phonogram stabilizes the vowel quite depend ably; in one syllable words the consonants which follow the vowel set the vowel value. (p.22) To determine developmental ability in predicting pronunciation from orthographic patterns, Venezky, Chapman and Calfee (1972) constructed a set of 69 pseudowords for use with good and poor readers from second, fourth and sixth grade. The pseudowords represented long and short vowel patterns, invariant consonant sounds and the variant consonant sounds of the letters c and cj. Oral responses to such items as "cabe" and "cipe" were taped and coded as correct, incorrect or plausible. Readers in second and to some extent fourth grade showed high correlations between reading ability and the ability to generalize pronunciation patterns although predicting pronunciation for the variant consonant patterns for c and c[ remained a problem with good and poor readers at sixth grade level. Venezky et al. noted that position of the letter in the word was important to its predictable pronunciation and suggested that the introduction of real word examples for each pattern in early reading material was important if the child was to notice structure in words. They stressed that spelling to sound correspondences are both regular and predictable and are used by readers to perceive and pronounce words. i A number of studies have attempted to isolate the patterns which represent the specific spelling-to-sound units employed by the reader. A study by Fletcher (1973) of the transfer of alternate spelling pat terns in initial reading using computer assisted instruction was cited by 16 Gibson and Levin (1976). Apparently words and pronounceable non-words of the CVC, CCVC, CVCC and CCVCC forms were presented to first grade children who had been taught according to two of the following treatment procedures. Treatment B provided practice with both initial and final letter clusters (ca- cla-; -ad, and); treatment I provided practice with initial units only (ca- cla); treatment F provided practice with only final units (-ad, -and); treatment N provided no practice. In the criterion test the treatment words were pre sented as whole units and the subjects were tested on all treatments. Training on the B and F treatments, both of which contained letter clusters of the phonogram form was superior to the I and N treatments. An investigation was also conducted by Santa (1977) to determine the unit employed by second, fifth and college level readers. Real word stimuli of the CCVCC form were presented simultaneously with corresponding pictures and same-different reaction time was measured. The words were presented as probes in which spelling-to-sound patterns were either maintained or disrupted (ex. BLAST B LAST BL AST BLAS T). Santa suggests that the task was probably too easy for fifth graders and adults since all probes were pro cessed equally well. However, children at second grade reading level responded significantly faster to both the whole words and the probes con taining the final triplet or phonogram. Santa concluded that "the final triplet functioned as a perceptual unit, but the data showed no evidence sup porting the final consonant cluster." (p.143) Studies of phonogram frequency. In light of the evidence supporting the phonogram as a critical unit of perception in word processing activities the question of frequency of occurrence in reading material has been re-examined. Frequency of occurrence of phonograms in materials used by elemen tary school readers, it is suggested, is not much greater than previously believed. However, both the informal design and the size of the data base suggest interpreting the findings with caution. Jones (1970) analyzed Dechant's (1964) list of 149 words common to primary grade basal readers for phonogram components. She concluded that 79.1 per cent of the words in this list could be decoded by phonogram iden tification. A random sampling of 1,400 words representing every tenth word in the Thorndike Barnhart (1962) Beginning Dictionary was then examined to determine phonogram frequencies in multisyllable words which were expected to be in the reading content of elementary school students. Jones concluded that the majority of words encountered by elementary.school readers can be decoded according to phonogram components that demonstrate consistent sound-symbol pattern. A list of the 50 most commonly occurring phonograms from this search was provided by Jones. Glass (1971) also has suggested that concern about both the numbers of phonograms and their frequency of occurrence in early reading materials must be answered by proponents of the phonogram approach. After examining the new vocabulary presented in basal readers of the first three grades Glass concluded that the number of different phonograms encountered is not onerous for the beginning reader and that frequency of occurrence is great enough to warrant their use in word analysis activities. A list of approximately 100 phonograms and their frequency of occurrence in basal reader for the first three grades was prepared. Half of these 100 phonograms occurred ten times or more and Glass has suggested that: 18 If these vowel phonograms could be consistently identified in whole words the youngster will have the vowel sounds introduced in over 90 per cent of the new vocabulary. (1971, p.230) It should be pointed out that these investigations of phonogram fre quency in elementary reading material seem to have been conducted informally by hand count. In more recent investigations related to units of perceptual pro cessing, the phonogram has been shown to be a unit of high recognition value. It would appear to be the letter cluster form most readily perceived by naive readers and one which good readers at a later stage use for predicting pronun ciation with unfamiliar word forms. Some evidence has also been provided suggesting that phonograms are basic components of the words encountered in reading material by elementary grade students. 19 CHAPTER III MATERIALS AND PROCEDURES This chapter presents a description of the materials required and the procedures employed in the development of phonogram-based word list derived from the occurrence of phonograms in the Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary  Reading Vocabularies list. Materials The study required the use of the Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary  Reading Vocabularies list and the Durrell-Murphy Phonogram List. The American  College Standard Reference Dictionary (Barnhard, 1959) was used to check syllabication and pronunciation. The Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary Reading Vocabularies list is a computer-generated word list derived from an analysis of 4,500,000 words from fourteen series of elementary school texts. These include six basal reader series and two series from Social Studies, Science, Mathematics and English. The Core list contains words which appear in at least three of the six basal reader series at each grade level. The Additional list contains words which appear in fewer than half of the basal reader series but in at least four of the fourteen series at each level. The Core list of 5,167 words and the Additional list of 1,641 words are both graded and comprise the graded General Vocabulary list. 20 The ungraded Technical Vocabulary list consists of 805 words not included in the Core list but found in both series of a content area and judged to have technical meaning in that area. A Total Alphabetical list is provided for all 7,613 words included in the Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary Reading Vocabularies list. The Durrell-Murphy Phonogram List is based on the frequency of occurrence of phonograms drawn from the Vocabulary of Rhymes in Webster's  Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary. A sample list of one syllable words is provided for each commonly occurring phonogram sound. Only one sample is given in parentheses for less frequently occurring alternate pronunciations. For example, separate sample lists are provided for the pronunciations of eat as in beat and threat but the less commonly occurring pronunciation as in great is suggested in parentheses. Procedures The procedure involved three major steps. The first step involved the production of a computer list that grouped the words of the Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary Reading Vocabularies list at each grade level by phonogram cluster. The second step was the processing of the computer product to produce a graded phonogram based word list that would be usable by reading teachers. A third step involved further analyses that provided information about specific characteristics of the word list produced. Producing the Computer List. All of the words of the General Vocabulary list 4 I of the Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary Reading Vocabularies list were typsd into the computer in graded format. The ungraded Technical Vocabulary list was then typed into the computer. The phonograms from the Durrell-Murphy Phonogram List were next entered alphabetically into the computer to create separate phonogram files. The Harris-Jacobson lists were then computer searched for occurrence of letter clusters representing each of the phonogram spellings. The printout from this search identified the words at each grade level which might contain the phonogram sound, that is, the words that had the specified sequence of letters and therefore might contain the phonogram sound. Since the computer cannot recognize phonological boundaries, the printout lists grouped together many words that contained the phonogram spelling but not the phonogram sound. For example, the word peace was included in the Grade Five printout list for ace phonograms (with brace, grace and trace) but in the final list was placed with eace words. Processing the Computer Product. The second step of the study involved a hand processing of the computer lists to match letter sequences representing the phonograms with consistent phonogram sounds. Only those words that contained the most common phonogram sounds were included in the graded phonogram-based word list. It was decided that a phonogram must occur in a minimum of five words across the grades to be included in the final product. The American College Standard Reference Dictionary was used to check both syllabication of words and phonogram pronunciation within words. The dictionary was used to ensure that the phonogram spelling formed all or part 22 of a syllable in each of the words included in the final phonogram-based word list. The pronunciation key was then used in a cross-check procedure to ensure that the phonogram formed a pronounceable unit with the required sound. Approximately twenty words included in the final list did not show the same syllabic division in the syllabication and pronunciation keys but were included in the final list because the phonogram formed the required pro nounceable unit in the base word (leader, poster). The Durrell-Murphy Phonogram List was used as a guide in the pro cessing of alternate pronunciations of phonograms. However, alternate pronun ciations of phonograms not noted by Durrell and Murphy for single syllable words but occurring frequently in multisyllable intermediate grade level words of the Harris-Jacobson list were also processed separately. Further Analyses. Word counts were obtained from the completed lists for the occurrence of each phonogram at each grade level. A total word count was then obtained for the frequency of occurrence of each phonogram within words of the General Vocabulary list of the Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary Reading  Vocabularies list. Lists derived from the Technical Vocabulary list were included in the final phonogram-based word list but excluded from the total count since the Technical Vocabulary list is ungraded and contains many words that appear in the graded Additional Vocabulary list. 23 A list of phonograms that produced fewer than five words each was prepared. The orthographic pattern/pronunciation pattern matching was done on the basis of what is believed to be standard Canadian dialect. Other dialects would produce different groupings. 24 CHAPTER IV SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS The purpose of the study was to reanalyze the graded word lists of the Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary Reading Vocabularies list according to phonogram components to provide a phonogram-based word list of the Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary Reading Vocabularies list in graded format. Summary of Findings The completed list is comprised of 5,943 words with 232 phonogram entries. Sample pages are included as Appendix A (every 5th page of an 88 page list). A count of phonogram frequency across grades appears as Appendix B. Sixty phonograms (or 21 per cent of the Durrell-Murphy phonograms) were omitted from the final list because the frequency of words in which these were found was fewer than five words. The list of phonograms omitted is provided in Table I.

A number of phonogram pronunciations not found in the Durrell-Murphy list but found occurring frequently in words of more than one syllable in the Barris-Jacobson list were included in the final list. These were able (suitable), age (village), ant (giant), ard (lizzard), ease (grease), our (detour) and ure (picture).

Data-Based Conclusions The study seemed to verify the priority given to alternate pronun ciations of phonograms in the Durrell-Murphy Phonogram List. That is, the alternate pronunciations offered in parentheses in the Durrell-Murphy list usually occurred in fewer than five words of the Harris-Jacobson list. Two exceptions to this occurred with the phonograms i_s (this) and oil (doll). Four of the five alternate pronunciations of phonograms not noted by Durrell and Murphy but found occurring frequently in words of more than one syllable contained a schwa sound when the phonogram served as the final syllable(s). These were able (suitable), age (village), ant (giant) and ard (lizzard). Other Observations Informal observations were also made about a number of phonograms that produced three or more pronunciations in a small number of words. The phonogram o_e occurred seven times with the pronunciation as in toe, three times with the pronunciation as in shoe and once with the pronunciation as in does. 30 The phonogram ough occurred in 14 words with five different pronun ciations (enough, cough, dough, through and bough). The majority of ar phonogram words contained the sound of ar as in car; however alternate pronunciations occurred in a small number of words with the pronunciations of ar as in sugar, quarter, marry and war. Syllabication affected the pronunciation of a number of phonograms that occurred in multisyllable words. The phonograms act, eld, ild, imp, int,  ist, und, urn and urt were generally divided between consonants in words of more than one syllable as in activity, elder, bewilder, simplify, superinten  dent, minister, blunder, furnish and frankfurter. Suggestions For Further Research Two suggestions for further research are made. 1. Reanalyze lists for occurrence of prefixes, suffixes and roots at each grade level. 2. Explore in a cross grades study the extent to which children learn earliest those phonograms that occur most frequently. 31 REFERENCES Barnhart, C.L. (Ed.)
