Abstract: An increasing body of research evidence supports the important role that phonological awareness plays in reading acquisition in many languages. Nevertheless, little is known to date about cognitive processes used in reading in other orthographies such as Arabic. On the one hand, some researchers argued that the rich morphological inflection that characterizes Semitic languages, makes of morphology an important tool to predict reading and spelling skills in those languages. On the other hand, studies have stressed the importance of orthographic as well as phonological skills in predicting reading abilities in Arabic. Our study was carried out to investigate the processes used in reading within beginners Arabic readers. More precisely, we aim to compare the performance of poor and normal readers in those skills. Results: Analyses are ongoing. Results and implications will be discussed at the conference
