Liu, Duo; Chen, Xi – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2020
The present study explored the mediating effect of word detection on the relationship between visual-spatial attention and reading comprehension in Chinese. The participants included 287 Hong Kong Chinese children (167 third graders, 84 girls, "mean age" = 8.73, SD = 0.49, and 120 fourth graders, 45 girls, "mean age" = 9.93, SD…

Damian, Markus F.; Qu, Qingqing – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Recent research has demonstrated that abstract orthographic representations such as morphemes, syllables, and graphemes, influence handwritten production in languages with alphabetic scripts. The orthographic representations involved in the written production of non-alphabetic languages such as Chinese are less well understood. Chinese words…

Zittoun, Tania – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017
This paper presents the concept of symbolic resources for apprehending sense-making in learning and instruction. It first reminds the centrality of sense-making in learning and instruction from a sociocultural perspective, and proposes a pragmatist approach to examine what sorts of knowledge people use when they face situations that matter. The…

Teng, Xiaochun; Yamada, Jun – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2017
The pedagogical and theoretical questions addressed in this study relate to the extent to which native Japanese readers with little or no knowledge of Chinese characters recognize Chinese characters that are viewed as abbreviations of the kanji they already know. Three graphic similarity functions (i.e., an orthographically acceptable similarity,…

Ma, Min-Yuan; Chuang, Hsien-Chih – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2017
Type design is the process of re-organizing visual elements and their corresponding meanings into a new organic entity, particularly for the highly logographic Chinese characters whose intrinsic features are retained even after re-organization. Due to this advantage, designers believe that such a re-organization process will not affect Chinese…

Tse, Linda F. L.; Siu, Andrew M. H.; Li-Tsang, Cecilia W. P. – Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention, 2017
Although copying and name writing skills are regarded as the indicators of handwriting development in alphabetic writing systems, there is limited information on logographs such as Chinese. Chinese characters are not only simply a combination of strokes as letters in English, but also place a great demand on visuospatial ability to maintain good…

Zhang, Weiwei; Li, Manliang – English Language Teaching, 2017
Over the past decades, subjects concerned with the Chinese character "zhi [Chinese character omitted]", i.e. grammatical structure, in ancient Chinese language, have been widely explored. This paper conducts a research from a new dimension: the Cardiff Grammar, an integral part of Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) which is famous for…

Barbot, Baptiste; Perchec, Cyrille – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2015
This article provides an introduction to the idiographic approach ("N = 1" research) in developmental psychology and an overview of methodological and statistical techniques employed to address the study of within-individual variability in development. Through a popularization of the idiographic approach and associated statistical…

Shen, Helen H.; Xu, Wenjing – Foreign Language Annals, 2015
Active learning emerged as a new approach to learning in the 1980s. The core concept of active learning involves engaging students not only in actively exploring knowledge but also in reflecting on their own learning process in order to become more effective learners. Because the nonalphabetic nature of the Chinese writing system makes learning to…

Jincho, Nobuyuki; Feng, Gary; Mazuka, Reiko – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2014
This study examined age-group differences in eye movements among third-grade, fifth-grade, and adult Japanese readers. In Experiment 1, Japanese children, but not adults, showed a longer fixation time on logographic kanji words than on phonologically transparent hiragana words. Further, an age-group difference was found in the first fixation…

Hatsidimitris, George; Kalyuga, Slava – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2013
Learning with instructional animations may overstretch limited working memory resources due to intense processing demands associated with transient information. The authors investigated whether explicit instructional advice coupled with a task-specific learner control mechanism (such as a timeline scrollbar) could facilitate the successful…

Hino, Yasushi; Kusunose, Yuu; Lupker, Stephen J.; Jared, Debra – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2013
Studies using the lexical decision task with English stimuli have demonstrated that homophones are responded to more slowly than nonhomophonic controls. In contrast, several studies using Chinese stimuli have shown that homophones are responded to more rapidly than nonhomophonic controls. In an attempt to better understand the impact of homophony,…

Wang, Hsueh-Cheng; Schotter, Elizabeth R.; Angele, Bernhard; Yang, Jinmian; Simovici, Dan; Pomplun, Marc; Rayner, Keith – Journal of Research in Reading, 2013
Previous research indicates that removing initial strokes from Chinese characters makes them harder to read than removing final or internal ones. In the present study, we examined the contribution of important components to character configuration via singular value decomposition. The results indicated that when the least important segments, which…

Kennedy, Kimberley D.; Romo, Harriett D. – Family Relations, 2013
This two-year autoethnographic action research study explores the processes a multiethnic/multiracial family uses to maintain their children's heritage language of Spanish and the family's multiculturalism. Data sources (including interviews and participant observations in the home and the dual-language school) specifically focus on the eldest…

Lam, Ho Cheong; Tsui, Bik May Amy – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2013
The variation theory of Ference Marton and his collaborators has widely been used as a framework for explaining what can possibly be learned in a particular classroom and what cannot. This paper reports on an experiment that put this theory to test in the context of students' learning of the orthographic structures of Chinese characters. The…
