Orthography/phonology relations and hemispheric functioning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A lateralized CVC identification paradigm was run on English and Hebrew speakers in their respective native language, using vertical and horizontal presentations. The task yields quantitative asymmetries reflecting hemispheric specialization and qualitative asymmetries reflecting hemispheric strategies. The quantitative patterns were identical across conditions, reflecting left hemisphere dominance for the task. The qualitative patterns in English and Hebrew using vertical presentation were opposing, while the patterns in the horizontal conditions were not. This is interpreted as reflecting the differing task demands of nonword naming in English and Hebrew based on the different orthography/phonology relations in the two languages.
