Abstract:

Writing allows people to convey information to others who are remote in time
and space, vastly increasing the range over which people can cooperate and the
amount they can learn. Mastering the writing system of one's language is
crucial for success in a modern society. This book examines how children learn
to write words. It provides a theoretical framework that integrates findings
from a wide range of age groups--from children who are producing their first
scribbles to experienced spellers who are writing complex words. To set the
stage for these discussions, early chapters of the book consider the nature of
writing systems and the nature of learning itself. The following chapters
review various aspects of orthographic development, including the learning of
symbol shapes and punctuation. Each chapter reviews research with learners of
a variety of languages and writing systems, revealing underlying similarities.
Discussions of how orthography is and should be taught are incorporated into
each chapter, making the book of interest to educators as well as to
psychologists, cognitive scientists, and linguists. This book is unique in the
range of topics and languages that it covers and the degree to which it
integrates linguistic insights about the nature of writing systems with
discussions of how people learn to use these systems. It is written in a
scholarly yet accessible manner, making it suited for a wide audience.
