A Case Study of an English-Japanese Bilingual with Monolingual Dyslexia.
Wydell, Taeko Nakayama; Butterworth, Brian
Cognition, v70 n3 p273-305 Apr 1 1999
Reports the case of a 16-year-old English/Japanese bilingual boy, with reading and writing difficulties confined to English. Presents the hypothesis of granularity and transparency, postulating that any language where orthography-to-phonology mapping is transparent/opaque, or any language whose orthographic unit representing sound is coarse should not produce a high incidence of developmental phonological dyslexia.
