Abstract:
			
This volume grew out of the workshop Writing Language, held at the Max
Planck Institute, Nijmegen. The papers represent several lines of
research into the intricate relation between writing and spoken
language: Theoretical and computational linguists discuss the models
that explain why orthographies are the way they are and the
constraints that hold between writing and speaking a language;
researchers in special education deal with the question of how certain
aspects of orthography can be learned; and psycholinguists discuss
aspects of language processing affected by variation in orthographies.
