Abstract

In previous REAP studies, students have asked to hear the pronunciation of target vocabulary words. Many words in English have grapheme to phoneme mappings which are not predictable from simple rules (e.g., "pint"). (need ref here to show that encoding sound of words improves retention of items on word lists).

In this study, the REAP tutor will be modified so that the pronunciation of target vocabulary words will be available via audio files. When students look up words in the online dictionary tool in REAP, they will have the opportunity to listen to the word pronounced by a native speaker.
