Does a focus on universals represent a new trend in word recognition?

  • Laurie Beth Feldman (a1) and Fermín Moscoso del Prado Martín (a2)

Comparisons across languages have long been a means to investigate universal properties of the cognitive system. Although differences between languages may be salient, it is the underlying similarities that have advanced our understanding of language processing. Frost is not unique in emphasizing that the interaction among linguistic codes reinforces the inadequacy of constructing a model of word recognition where orthographic processes operate in isolation.
