Abstract
The human brain exhibits hemispheric differences in information processing
functions, and this fact of laterality preferences is reflected in language
processing functions which involve lexical access and written word
recognition in Japanese. This paper evaluates the Japanese psycholinguistic
literature in the areas of experimental psychology and clinical
aphasiology in an attempt to ascertain whether Japanese is unique in its
characteristic pattern of laterality preferences in information processing
tasks which involve its syllabary (kana) and Chinese character (kanji) orthographic
representations. This paper also addresses misperceptions regarding
lateralization and hemispheric preferences in processing Japanese
orthographic types, since purported differences in lateralization can be uncritically
accepted as underlying factors in not only language processing,
but can also find their way into Nihonjinron discussions of differences in
mental attitude and philosophical outlook.
