Early stage visual-orthographic processes predict long-term retention of word form and meaning: A visual encoding training study
(Journal of Neurolinguistics, 2013)
Adult learners of Chinese learned new characters through writing, visual chunking or reading-only. Following training, ERPs were recorded during character recognition tasks, first shortly after the training and then three ...
Writing quality predicts Chinese learning
To examine the importance of manual character writing to reading in a new writing system, 48 adult Chinese-as-a-foreign-language students were taught characters in either a character writing-to-read or an alphabet ...
Improved vocabulary outcomes through student reflection: Report from an urban high school
(Journal for Classroom Research in Literacy, 2013)
Low-SES students are at a particular disadvantage when it comes to vocabulary acquisition, and poor vocabulary is a significant risk factor for poor reading comprehension. This paper describes an attempt to improve New ...
Error-related negativities during spelling judgments expose orthographic knowledge
In two experiments, we demonstrate that error-related negativities (ERNs) recorded during spelling decisions can expose individual differences in lexical knowledge. The first experiment found that the ERN was elicited ...
Universal reading processes are modulated by language and writing system
The connections among language, writing system, and reading are part of what confronts a child in learning to read. We examine these connections in addressing how reading processes adapt to the variety of written language ...
Writing Affects the Brain Network of Reading in Chinese: A Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
We examined the hypothesis that learning to write Chinese characters influences the brain’s reading network for characters. Students from a college Chinese class learned 30 characters in a character-writing condition and ...
Learning to read English
(Cambridge University Press, 2017)
Lexical Stress and Linguistic Predictability Influence Proofreading Behavior
There is extensive evidence that the segmental (i.e., phonemic) layer of phonology is routinely activated during reading, but little is known about whether phonological activation extends beyond phonemes to subsegmental ...
Individual Differences in Phonological Feedback Effects: Evidence for the Orthographic Recoding Hypothesis of Orthographic Learning
Share (1995) has proposed phonological recoding (the translation of letters into sounds) as a self-teaching mechanism through which readers establish complete lexical representations. More recently, McKague et al. (2008) ...
