Afonso, Olivia; Álvarez, Carlos J.; Martínez, Carmen; Cuetos, Fernando – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The present study addresses the scope of the writing difficulties observed in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Patients with AD, patients with MCI and healthy controls performed a written picture-naming task and a direct copy transcoding task in which phonology-to-orthography (P-O) consistency was…

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…

Bonin, Patrick; Méot, Alain; Laroche, Betty; Bugaiska, Aurélia; Perret, Cyril – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The present study was aimed at investigating whether and how image characteristics influence written naming performance in adults. In three different sessions, participants had to quickly write down the names of pictured objects on a graphic tablet. Across sessions, the picture format was different, but the to-be-named objects were the same: There…

Breining, Bonnie; Rapp, Brenda – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
In three experiments, we examined whether similar principles apply to written and spoken production. Using a blocked cyclic written picture naming paradigm, we replicated the semantic interference effects previously reported in spoken production (Experiment 1). Using a written spelling-to-dictation blocked cyclic naming task, we also demonstrated…

Feng, Luxi; Lindner, Amanda; Ji, Xuejun Ryan; Malatesha Joshi, R. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
According to the simple view of writing (Berninger, Abbott, Abbott, Graham, & Richards, 2002), the two important components of transcription in writing are handwriting and keyboarding, the third one being spelling. The purpose of this paper is to review the contribution of two writing modes--handwriting and keyboarding to writing performance.…

Rønneberg, Vibeke; Torrance, Mark – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Spelling accuracy and time course was investigated in a sample of 100 Norwegian 6th grade students completing a standardized spelling-to-dictation task. Students responded by keyboard with accurate recordings of response-onset latency (RT) and inter-keypress interval (IKI). We determined effects of a number of child-level cognitive ability…

Kandel, Sonia; Peereman, Ronald; Ghimenton, Anna; Perret, Cyril – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The present research is a cross-linguistic study indicating that the timing of motor production not only depends on the shape of a letter and the activation of its motor program but also on the way the orthographic representations encode the letters for spelling retrieval. English and Italian-speaking participants wrote cognate words (e.g.,…

Quémart, Pauline; Lambert, Eric – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Grapheme and syllable units have been shown to influence the dynamics of handwriting in adults and children, but the influence of morphemes remains to be clarified. We tested the ability of French-speaking adults and fourth and sixth grade children to process the morphological structure of words during writing. They were asked to copy three types…

Planton, Samuel; Jucla, Mélanie; Démonet, Jean-François; Soum-Favaro, Christiane – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Recent studies on written word production aim at studying how information is transmitted between central (linguistic) and peripheral (motor) processes. Neurocognitive models propose that the interface between both types of processes would rely on a frontal writing center (i.e. the GMFA or "Exner's area"). However there is still debate…

Mo, Jianhong; McBride, Catherine; Yip, Laiying – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2018
We sought to test a componential model of Chinese written spelling, including the role of orthographic working memory (OWM), among Hong Kong kindergartners. One hundred seventeen kindergartners were recruited. OWM was measured using a visual orthographic judgment and a delayed copying task. Orthographic knowledge, semantic knowledge, and…

Shahar-Yames, Daphna; Prior, Anat – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2018
Lexical inferencing from text is a powerful tool for vocabulary and reading comprehension enhancement. Lexical inferencing relies on the pre-requisite skills of reading and existing vocabulary, and is also linked to non-verbal inferencing abilities and reading comprehension. In this study, we examined whether Fifth-grade Russian-speaking language…

Yang, Ruoxiao; Wang, William Shi Yuan – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2018
Recent research has shown that the visual complexity of orthographies across writing systems influences the development of orthographic representations. Simplified and traditional Chinese characters are usually regarded as the most visually complicated writing systems currently in use, with the traditional system showing a higher level of…

Kim, Minkyung; Crossley, Scott A.; Skalicky, Stephen – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2018
This study examines whether lexical features and textual properties along with individual differences on the part of readers influence word processing times during second language (L2) reading comprehension. Forty-eight Spanish-speaking adolescent and adult learners of English read nine English passages in a self-paced word-by-word reading…

Ford, Karen; Invernizzi, Marcia; Huang, Francis – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2018
This study was designed to identify a continuum of orthographic features that characterize Spanish spelling development in Grades 1-3. Two research questions guided this work: (1) Is there a hierarchy of orthographic features that affect students' spelling accuracy in Spanish over and above other school-level, student-level, and word-level…

Campos, Ana Duarte; Mendes Oliveira, Helena; Soares, Ana Paula – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2018
The role of syllables as a sublexical unit in visual word recognition and reading is well established in deep and shallow syllable-timed languages such as French and Spanish, respectively. However, its role in intermediate stress-timed languages remains unclear. This paper aims to overcome this gap by studying for the first time the role of…
