Beyond isolated word recognition

Liversedge, Simon P., Blythe, Hazel I. and Drieghe, Denis (2012) Beyond isolated word recognition Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 35, (5), pp. 31-32. (doi:10.1017/S0140525X12000210).

Record type: Article


In this commentary we concur with Frost’s view of the centrality of universal principles in models of word identification. However, we argue that other processes in sentence comprehension also fundamentally constrain the nature of written word identification. Furthermore, these processes appear to be universal. We, therefore, argue that universality in word identification should not be considered in isolation, but instead in the context of other linguistic processes that occur during normal reading.
