Title: Meaning and Dyslexia
Subtitle: A study on pronouns, aspect, and quantification
Written By: Gaetano Fiorin
Series Title: LOT dissertation series 235
Description:

This study is on the relation between developmental dyslexia and language
comprehension. It provides novel evidence that children with dyslexia
experience difficulties in the comprehension of sentences containing
ambiguous pronouns, imperfective sentences, and sentences containing a
universal quantifier. This evidence is used to formulate an hypothesis
about the cognitive impairment underlying dyslexia. The result is the
verbal Working Memory Deficit Hypothesis, according to which dyslexia is
associated with a deficit affecting the verbal component of the Working
Memory system. The study capitalizes on insights from both formal
linguistics and developmental psychology. It is thus of interest to
psychologists as well as to formal linguists.
