ABSTRACT

This study was done to find out the level of understanding of liaison rule targeting 48 children age 5 to age 6 and 11 months(24 boys and 24 girls) by giving them reading tasks. We had chosen children of these ages because subjectional vowels are the important variables in the liaison rule of reading. This study focused on finding the differences of liaison rule development depending on age, postposition, number of syllables and phoneme. This study was done using 64 sentences with liaison rule. The data analysis was based on the Pronunciation Law, clause 13 and 14. As a result, the understanding of liaison rule by children aged 5 was significantly lower than that by children aged 6. Also, the results varied significantly between individuals within the same age group. In addition, children commonly made errors with the words containing /ㅅ/ which are out of harmony with Korean alphabets and phonemes. In conclusion, we believe that liaison rule should be taught at age 5 when they begin to read after phoneme is understood and in order to do so, the rules of the Korean alphabets and phonemes should be taught first.
