Overview

The study of acquired reading disorders has served as a touchstone of research on language and the brain. Researchers believe that an in-depth analysis of reading disorders could lead to comprehensive models of the representation of reading skills and its subcomponents in the human brain. Significantly, in the past decade, there has been an increase in the research on learning to read and write and on the factors affecting reading within broader cross-linguistic and cross-cultural perspectives. This volume focuses on cross-linguistic studies of the acquired disorders of reading and what they can tell us about the models of reading and the human brain. The author has compiled a source-book on cross-linguistic studies of reading disorders with data from the alphasyllabaries of India, in addition to showing the implications of these findings on the understanding of reading, its acquisition, and the developmental and acquired reading disorders and their management.
