Do Hispanic and non-Hispanic second graders acquire knowledge ofstructural features of words in the same order and at the same rate? Doesthe order and rate of acquisition of structural features produce differentialeffects on their word recognition performance? An analysis of these effectswas the focus of our research. The subjects studied were 36 Hispanic and 39non-Hispanic second grade students in a rural West Texas School District.The effects of ten structural features of words on Hispanic and non-Hispanicsecond graders' word recognition performance were examined. The resultsrevealed an interesting phenomenon: both groups appear to be acquiringknowledge of the structural features of words at different rates, but in aroughly similar order with Hispanic learners lagging behind the non-Hispanic counterparts.
