Résumé: Many scholars have demonstrated that the child’s representations of the alphabetic system depend on a long developmental path and start well before the first step in school (Ferreiro, 2000; Sirois, Boisclair & Makdissi, 2008). ￼However, the child’s constructions in a consonantal writing system have not been documented. ￼The aim of this study is to describe on the one hand the structuration of invented spelling for children who are exposed to two writing systems (consonant/arabic and alphabetic/french) and, on the other hand, the relation ￼between this two systems. ￼Sixty lebanese children participated to this study (4 to 6 years-old). The children were selected from three public ￼school in North Lebanon. ￼The children has been asked to write, as they think, eight words that contains different grapho-phonemic segmentations. ￼The results show that there is no significant differences between writing structuration at 4 and 5 years-old. It is at 6 years-old that differences became significant between those two different writing systems. The results also indicate ￼significant differences between age supporting a developmental pathway. Moreover, the results sustain a developmental hypothesis of a unique inductive structuration in both systems till the beginning of school when ￼children begin their formal instruction into writing.
