Dyslexia and Typologically Distant Languages
The Case of Chinese
Since the researchers found out that the concentration of dyslexic people in China was not less than in Europe, Chinese development dyslexia became a magnetising subject in China. This article will give a general overview of more than one aspects of the morphological processing, phonetic consciousness, orthography processing, semantic processing and Chinese development dyslexia children through the analyses of significant experimental research data. Furthermore, references will be made to the dissimilarity of translation and definition of dyslexia between China and Europe and to the associate historical evolution, which has been started in the 1980 and is still in progress.
