L'épreuve de répétition de non-mots LITMUS-NWR-FR évalue-t-elle la phonologie ?

Abstract : The LITMUS nonword repetition test for French (LITMUS-NWR-FR) (Ferré & Santos, 2015) was developed to primarily assess phonology in monolingual or bilingual children. The purpose of our study is to ensure that LITMUS-NWR-FR fulfills this goal by looking at the respective contribution of the following variables in children’s performance: verbal short-term memory (vSTM) and phonological similarity, cognitive flexibility, socioeconomic status (SES) and bilingualism. 193 children aged 3;10 to 5;0 were assessed using cognitive and language tests as well as a parental questionnaire. The results reveal no effect of bilingualism on performance at LITMUS-NWR-FR, and the SES does not show a substantial link with these performances. vSTM accounts for a significant part of the variance of LITMUS-NWR-FR scores (35%). However, all together, the variables studied explained only a moderate part of the variation. This result support our hypothesis, phonology seems to be the main variable assessed by this test.
