A linguistic approach to reading and writing
Scholes (speech and linguistics, U. of Florida) examines the relationships between writing systems, speech, and language. He finds that speech and writing are two wholly separated processes of language that can not be mapped onto one another. He also explores the differences in consciousness that arise from using ideographic versus alphabetical script.
