Abstract:

The study of acquired reading disorders has served as a touchstone of
research on language and the brain. Researchers believe that an
in-depth analysis of reading disorders could lead to comprehensive
models of the representation of reading skills and its subcomponents
in the human brain. Significantly, in the past decade, there has been
an increase in the research on learning to read and write and on the
factors affecting reading within broader cross-linguistic and
cross-cultural perspectives.

This volume focuses on cross-linguistic studies of the acquired
disorders of reading and what they can tell us about the models of
reading and the human brain. The author has compiled a source-book on
cross-linguistic studies of reading disorders with data from the
alphasyllabaries of India, in addition to showing the implications of
these findings on the understanding of reading, its acquisition, and
the developmental and acquired reading disorders and their management.
