    Abstract

    This special issue, Advances in Understanding the Role of Morphemes in Literacy Development, is composed of one narrative review and 11 empirical papers that contribute new theoretical and empirical evidence to our understanding of how morphemes influence reading and spelling development. Here, we summarise key findings from these papers in terms of what they tell us about the multidimensional nature of morphological knowledge and how morphological information is processed at different levels, including across developmental changes and languages. Throughout this discussion, we draw out the implications for education and highlight targeted areas for further research.
