Wang, Min; Perfetti, Charles A.; Liu, Ying
Scientific Studies of Reading, v7 n2 p183-208 2003
Examines how alphabetic readers learn to read Chinese. Explores the effect of the frequency of the characters in their curriculum on performance of a lexical decision and naming task. Finds that the beginning learners were sensitive to the structural complexity and composition of characters. Suggests that perceptual learning plays an important role in early nonalphabetic learning by alphabetic readers. (SG)
