Special Issue call for abstracts “Relationship of Spoken Language Skills and Literacy Acquisition (ENG2017)”
Editors: Seidlova Malkova Gabriela, Spackova Klara
Linkages between spoken language development and typical and / or atypical literacy development attract enormous attention of research throughout the recent decades. While there is actually a huge and comprehensive knowledge on language and literacy development relationship in English speaking populations, the research from other languages, esp. Slavonic ones, tends to develop slowly and with the less attention from the international audience. For this special issue we preferably invite authors to submit abstracts of research and review articles based on research conducted in Slavonic languages.
We are interested in a mix of studies using various approaches to study spoken language skills and literacy (reading and or spelling) developmental relationship. We prefer preschool, school and youth age children targeted research manuscripts. Original research submissions, methodological papers, and review papers will be considered. The content of the manuscript should preferably slope into four general topics:
1) The role of spoken language skills in the reading and/or spelling skills development
2) Language skills of at risk groups of literacy development (dyslexia, specific language impairment)
3) Development of literacy of various at risk of literacy populations
4) Language skills with the relationship to the literacy development – various issues in assessment
