Reading : Learning, Writing & Disorders Hardback
Edited by Diane R. Thompson, Lidia E. Bushnell
Reading is the cognitive process of deriving meaning from written or printed text.
It is a means of language acquisition, of communication, and of sharing information and ideas.
Effective readers use decoding skills (to translate printed text into the sounds of language), use morpheme, semantics, syntax and context cues to identify the meaning of unknown words, activate prior knowledge (schemata theory), use comprehension, and demonstrate fluency during reading.
Other types of reading may not be text-based, such as music notation or pictograms.
By analogy, in computer science, reading is acquiring of data from some sort of computer storage.
This book presents the latest research in the field.
