Geva, Esther; Siegel, Linda S.
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v12 n1-2 p1-30 Mar 2000
Considers whether the development of reading skills in different orthographies varies primarily as a function of common underlying cognitive processes, or as a function of orthographic transparency. Concludes that when the script is less complex young children appear to develop their word recognition skills with relative ease, even in the absence of sufficient linguistic proficiency. (SC)
