AbstractThe present study aimed at investigating how the overall token frequency (OTF) and positional specific token frequency (PSTF) of logographeme affected the writing performance across grades. A total of 13 students in grade 2, 15 students in grade 4, and 17 students in grade 6 from an ordinary primary school in Hong Kong participated in the delayed copying task of pseudo-characters of left-right configuration constructed by four logographemes. Four categories of stimuli (HH, HL, LH and LL) were constructed according to the OTF and PSTF of logographemes. Results showed that main effect of OTF was found across the three grades and the effect of PSTF was significant only between the HH (high OTF and high PSTF) and LL (low OTF and low PSTF) categories in grade 2. Meanwhile, there was a trend of decreasing effect of OTF across grades. The results appear to support that logographeme was the basic processing unit in writing Chinese characters and its role decreased across grades.
