The Universal Grammar of Reading.
Perfetti, Charles A.
Scientific Studies of Reading, v7 n1 p3-24 2003
Considers how reading has universal properties that can be seen across the world's writing systems. Discusses the most important universal language constraint: All writing systems represent spoken languages, a universal with consequences for reading processes. Draws on observations and research from Chinese and Korean to examine these universal writing-specific aspects of reading and considers the implications of the universal language constraint for learning to read.
