How Writing Represents Speech.
Olson, David R.
Language and Communication, v13 n1 p1-17 Jan 1993
Explores how graphic symbols came to represent underlying linguistic constituents. It is suggested that the relationship between speech and writing may be just the opposite of what is traditionally assumed. Writing systems may provide the concepts and categories for thinking about the structure of speech rather than the reverse. (47 references) (LET)
