A Reading Experiment with Pitman's World Initial Teaching Alphabet (W.I.T.A.)

W.I.T.A. is a coding system aimed at making learning to read English easier by using more consistent symbol-sound relationships than exist in Traditional Othography. W.I.T.A. also gives clues for identifying stressed and unstressed syllables, and changes in vowel sounds in stressed and unstressed positions. The study investigates longitudinally (1966-68) the values and problems of teaching young children (7-9) to read through W.I.T.A. by comparison with a controlled group learning to read T.O.
