Learning to Read in Japan.
Neville, Mary H.
Reading, v12 n1 p21-28 Apr 1978
Reviews literature that describes the success of Japanese children in learning to read Japanese; concludes that Japanese children learn their phonemic Kana script very quickly, possibly because they work with the syllable as a unit, but that the Kanji (Chinese characters) in the Japanese text present difficulties for learners.
