Title: Reading Chinese Script: A Cognitive Analysis
Edited By: AlbrechtWInhoff
Description:

Cognitive scientists, psycholinguists, and reading researchers; a graduate-level text for courses in reading and literacy. This volume uses unique properties of Chinese script to focus on morphological analyses during the character and word recognition process, though some of the reported work also pertains to the use of phonological information. In addition, this volume contains work on syntactic and pragmatic processes during sentence reading and three chapters that examine on-line processes. A comprehensive appraisal of cognitive processes during the reading of Chinese script that includes studies conducted by leading researchers from within and outside the mainland, this volume will be of interest to all those studying reading and visual symbol processing.
