AbstractFor native readers of alphabetic scripts, learning to read a logographic system such as Chinese is challenging. This is not only because Chinese characters look drastically unlike from words in alphabetic scripts, but also because mappings between orthographic and phonological units in the two systems are different. In this study, we investigated two measures of orthography-phonology mapping-- phonological regularity and consistency--in relatively proficient late-acquired second language (L2) readers of Chinese in lexical decision (LD) and delayed naming (DN) tasks. Most Chinese characters are phonograms, which have a phonetic radical that carries phonological ...
