ABSTRACT

This study explores the performance on different components of the phonological awareness (i.e., rhyme generation (RG), phoneme deletion (PD), phoneme reversal (PR), syllable deletion (SD), syllable reversal (SR) and spoonerism (Spo) among 4th, 5th and 6th grade children. A total of 110 children (31-4th, 41-5th and 38-6th graders) spoke only one language, and Kannada was their mother tongue. The results indicate that there is a slight increase in performance on all components of phonological awareness. However, there are no significant differences in performance on component skills of phonological awareness across the grades observed except from syllable reversal.   The results also reveal that a better performance, from all the groups, on syllable and rime tasks when compared to phoneme level tasks.
