Is the ability to segment while reading a genetic trait?

Postby amylea14 » Tue Jan 08, 2013 6:28 pm

I recently attended an online class where the reading specialist running the session noted that the ability to segment (in regards to phonological awareness) is a genetically inherited trait? Is this true? What studies have been done on this?

The best place to start your inquiry is to ask person who said it to provide you with that information...

First, Cat is right. Second, some people believe that the whole concept of human language is decoded genetically, so why not segmenting?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
