Use of Phonological Information in Processing kanji and katakana by Skilled and Less Skilled Japanese Readers.
Leong, Che Kan; Tamaoka, Katsuo
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v7 n4 p377-93 Dec 1995
Examines if phonological processing in biscriptal Japanese orthography may accompany accurate, rapid visual recognition of single "kanji" characters according to semantic/phonetic constituent elements, and high- and low-frequency "katakana" words. Suggests that visual-phonetic recoding may be possible in accessing difficult kanji characters with phonetic elements, and phonological processing may vary according to frequency of katakana words.
