RESEARCH OF THE ABILITY TO ISOLATE SYLLABLES FROM WORDS IN PRESCHOOL AGED CHILDREN
The presented study deals with theoretical starting points, issues and research findings in the area of phonological awareness in relation to the elementary linguistic literacy of preschool aged children in Slovakia. The theoretical-empirical study is focused on a child´s ability to manipulate with syllables. The research was conducted with 866 respondents in the age range of four to seven years old. The aim was to find out a child´s ability to isolate certain syllables from a word and name the word or syllable resulting from the removal of the specified syllable. Except two tasks for practicing, there were five tested words. Children presented their skill to isolate or omit initial, middle and final syllables in the tested words. The results are part of a more extensive study focused on the development of a complex tool used to evaluate the level of phonemic awareness.
