The importance of language consistency for literacy development
Trojanová, Mariana ; Seidlová Málková, Gabriela (advisor) ; Richterová, Eva (referee)
This bachelor thesis is a theoretical work discussing the extent of the impact of orthographic depth (consistency) on acquiring early literacy in alphabetic writing systems from the point of view of current psycholinguistics. Alphabetic writing systems vary in the regularity and consistency of their correspondences between graphemes and phonemes, which impacts the development of early reading and writing skills. The goal of this paper is to clarify whether the cognitive development underlying reading and writing skills has the same origin in languages with deep and shallow orthography or if it is of a different nature in the two. The impact of orthographic depth is examined on the level of (1) developmental dyslexia, (2) the rate of development of early literacy skills and (3) the predictors of the early literacy. Throughout research studies it is shown that the orthographical consistency has most impact on the rate and extend of obstacles which are faced by the young reader/writer while acquiring early reading and writing skills. However, the cognitive development underlying the early literacy skills and the predictors of future success in reading has the same origin in all alphabetic writing systems. Keywords: orthographic depth, alphabetic principle, psycholinguistic approach, predictors of...
