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…

Wang, Elaine Lin; Matsumura, Lindsay Clare – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Writing analytically about text is a valued skill reflected in current academic standards. The quality of text-based writing opportunities in U.S. elementary schools, however, is generally weak, with variation in the rigor of the writing tasks teachers assign. Previous research suggests that teachers' beliefs about instruction significantly…

Tse, Linda Fung Ling; Siu, Andrew Man Hong; Li-Tsang, Cecilia Wai Ping – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
This study developed and validated a Chinese name writing scale (CNWS) for evaluating early handwriting skills of kindergarten children. We then used the validated CNWS to examine the developmental characteristics of Chinese name writing skills among kindergarten children in Hong Kong in a cross-sectional study. CNWS was developed based on English…

List, Alexandra; Stephens, Lori A.; Alexander, Patricia A. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Prior work has examined the role of interest in students' single text processing and comprehension, but interest has been under-examined within the context of multiple text use. This study examines two forms of interest, individual interest and situational interest, in the context of students' completion of a multiple text task. Time on texts and…

Lawrence, Joshua Fahey; Hagen, Aste Mjelve; Hwang, Jin Kyoung; Lin, Grace; Lervåg, Arne – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
This study examined the relationship between knowledge of academic vocabulary and reading comprehension in data contributed by 5855 middle school students. Each student completed an academic vocabulary assessment, a standardized reading comprehension test, and one of four types of novel vocabulary-depth measures. "Multiword expressions"…

Vibulpatanavong, Kanokporn; Evans, David – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Phonological awareness has been found to be an important skill underpinning reading development in several alphabetic languages. However, the development of phonological awareness and its relationship to reading development can be influenced by the nature of the language under investigation. While understanding this relationship in Thai language…

Xu, Zhengye; Liu, Duo – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
In the present study, 151 third-grade Hong Kong children participated in two expression-picture matching experiments (a relation priming paradigm). In this paradigm, an unambiguous prime was first presented, followed by an ambiguous target that could be interpreted with either of two relations (i.e., Descriptor and Possessor). Children were asked…
