Focusing on phonograms and generalizations about phonics, this paper presents a comprehensive letter-sound study. The first chapter discusses the phonogram component of phonics, the Arthur Gates study of phonograms in l928, the phonics generalizations studies of the l960s, and the lack of a comprehensive study of the letter-sound relationship. The second chapter describes a comprehensive letter-sound study in which letter-sound relationships are noted in 16 generalizations, while chapter 3 has two parts, the first explaining the selection of the words listed in the second part, which focuses on blending short vowel sounds with single and blended consonant sounds. Chapter 4 discusses teaching automatic reading techniques--a modification of the repeated reading techniques--that will enable children to use the decoding skills they have learned to read text fluently. Appendixes include a list of parameters for the data presented in this report and a list of children's books that includes titles of both honorable mention and award-winning Caldecott and Newbery books.
