Abstract
Reading and writing are inevitably affected by the features of the orthography
in question. This paper aims to examine the manifestation and causes of
dyslexia in logographic Chinese. Studies to date have suggested that phonological
processing skills are associated with reading difficulties in Chinese as
they are in other writing systems. In addition, Chinese dyslexics also appear to
be impaired on orthographic processing and rapid naming. In particular, they
show difficulties in using knowledge about the internal structures of Chinese
characters to read unfamiliar and infrequent words. It is therefore likely that
deficits in both orthographic and phonological processing are responsible for
reading failure in Chinese.
