Orthographies and Reading : Perspectives from Cognitive Psychology, Neuropsychology, and Linguistics Hardback
Edited by Leslie Henderson
Part of the Psychology Library Editions: Psychology of Reading series
Originally published in 1984, the previous two decades had seen a rebirth of psychological interest in the process of reading.
Attention had increasingly been directed to aspects of fluent reading, such as eye-movement control or contextual effects within the sentence, to a great extent progress had depended on refinement of the experimental analysis of factors that govern the processing of isolated words.
This seemingly narrow concern with word recognition turned out to raise a rich collection of questions about the reader's access to phonology and meaning.
In this volume these questions are pursued across the range of orthographic systems which written languages exhibit.
