Title: Spelling Morphology
Subtitle: The Psycholinguistics of Hebrew Spelling
Written By: Dorit Diskin Ravid
Description:

Modern Hebrew is a highly synthetic Semitic language- its lexicon is rich in
morphemes. This volume supplies the first in-depth psycholinguistic analysis of
the interaction between morphological knowledge and spelling in Hebrew. It also
examines how far this model can be applied to other languages. Anchored to a
connectionist, cognitive, cross-linguistic and typological framework, the study
accords with today’s perception of spelling as being much more than a mere
technical skill. Contemporary psycholinguistic literature views spelling as a
window on what people know about words and their structure. The strong
correlation between orthographies and morphological units makes linking
consistent grammatical and lexical representation and spelling units in speaker-
writers a key research goal. Hebrew’s wealth of morphological structures,
reflected in its written form, promotes morphological perception and strategies in
those who speak and write it, adding vitality and relevance to this work.
