    Phonemic awareness is one component of a broader skill know as phonological awareness. Phonological awareness involves being able to identify and manipulate parts of oral language such as words, syllables, onsets and rimes (Yopp & Yopp, 2009, p. 1). To illustrate, a child who has developed phonological awareness would be able to clap out syllables of a word, recognise rhyming words and alliteration and be able to manipulate sounds in words. Phonemes are the smallest unit of spoken language (Yopp & Yopp, 2000, p. 130). The English language is made up of about 44 different phonemes (Yopp & Yopp, 2009, p. 3). For example, the word dog has one syllable which is made up of three phonemes /d/ /o/ /g/. Phonemic awareness is the realisation that all words are made up of a sequence of phonemes and that these phonemes can be taken apart, put back together, rearranged, omitted or added, to change the meaning of the word (Hill, 2006, p. 135). It is important that children grasp this concept because when they are introduced to written language, they will learn that each spoken sound is recorded separately by one or more grapheme. If a child is unable to separate words in spoken sounds, then they will experience difficulty attempting to record and decode written words (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHHD), 2001). In fact, Stanovich (1993-94, p. 284) claims that a child’s level of phonemic awareness, rather than IQ or socio-economic…
