The study examines the lexical and sublexical processing in a group of typically developing primary school children by detecting of temporal parameters in a spelling to dictation task. Fifteen 3th grade children and nineteen 5th grade children took part in the study. The temporal variables examined were sensitive to the different psycholinguistic characteristics of the stimuli. Ambiguous word spelling, which require the access to orthographic representations, and context-sensitivity word spelling, entailed longer writing times and a greater number of pauses than spelling regular words and pseudowords. The resulting data suggest the potential usefulness of temporal variables in testing the efficiency of lexical and sublexical processes in typical developing children of different schooling.
