Writing Left and Right.
de Kerckhove, Derrick
Interchange, v18 n1-2 p60-77 Spr-Sum 1987
This paper explores the relationship between the structure of orthographies and the way they are laid out spatially. In most written systems, consonantal alphabets have been written right to left, while vocalic ones have been written left to right, suggesting directional properties are the consequences of different processing strategies.
