Cognitive Processes in Spelling.
Frith, Uta, Ed.
The purpose of this book is to encourage a more serious study of spelling by discussing it as both a skill and a problem and by highlighting some previously ill-understood processes involved in learning to spell. The 22 chapters are arranged under the following eight categories: spelling instruction and spelling reform, spelling and language, spelling and word recognition, spelling strategies, spelling errors, spelling and development, spelling and language disorders, and spelling and dyslexia. Specific topics discussed in the chapters include: linguistic information in spelling, orthographic awareness, American black English and spelling, visual factors in spelling, spelling errors in handwriting, the development of orthographic images, spontaneous spelling by language disordered children, lexical and nonlexical processing of spelling in dyslexia, and unexpected spelling problems.
