Examined Korean and Chinese college-level ESL learners for relative reliance on phonological and orthographic processing in English word identification. Found that Korean, but not Chinese, students made more false positive errors in judging stimuli that were homophones to category exemplars than in judging spelling controls. Chinese students made more accurate responses to stimuli that were less similar in spelling to category exemplars than those that were more similar. (Author/KB)
