We sought an alternative way of presenting alphabetic writing
to this child and her classmates.
The development of alphabetic writing
was both an advance and a diminishment in communication.
Spelling development in alphabetic writing
systems: A cross-linguistic perspective.
What these studies tell us is that phoneme sensitivity is important to unlocking alphabetic writing
systems and the tasks of phoneme isolation, blending and segmenting are most likely to impact reading success.
These are rhythms without substance; but they bring forth or lend themselves to substance and system--'regulating the behavior of the amoeba or the annelid up to the passage beyond alphabetic writing
to the orders of the logos of a certain homo sapiens, the possibility of the gramme structures the movement of its history according to rigorously original levels, types and rhythms'.
Brokaw explains that because the Spaniards came from a society that used alphabetic writing
to communicate, they found it hard to recognize a series of knots and strings as an important form of communication.
Research on young learners from a variety of languages that use alphabetic writing
systems indicate that (l) PA is a critical component of alphabetic reading, (2) learners with PA deficits often experience difficulty in learning to read, and (3) explicit PA instruction, or training, leads to gains in decoding and spelling (Adams, 1990; Ball & Blachman.
1550-1650) saw the borrowing of a multitude of Spanish nouns, the spread of alphabetic writing
in Mixtec, and increasingly noticeable change in native naming practices (the adoption of Spanish forms); and the later colonial period saw native language patterns themselves changing, but the wide survival of Mixtec use in the region.
Alessandro Carrera comments on Sini's position: 'As tragedy was born from the spirit of music (from the non-linear Dionysian experience), so philosophy was born from the spirit of alphabetic writing
, from Plato's desire to write down the unwritten appearance of Socrates' (p.
But can we go along with Rajan in suggesting that Hegel's well-known assumed preference for the romantic art of his own time--Christian, European and depending upon alphabetic writing
, as well as being almost at the desired "end" of history--masks a "powerful attraction to the symbolic as the abjected form of the romantic"?
Embedded in this view of the primitiveness of pictographs is the Eurocentric belief that it was only with the development of alphabetic writing
that the Greeks were able to develop philosophy, the concept of law, and the concept of justice; purportedly, this was because once written, previously spoken ephemeral thoughts now registered and fixed on paper, and distanced from the immediacy of their context of occurrence, could become the object of sophisticated contemplation.
Gelb's classic work, A Study of Writing (1963), adds a developmental theory of writing that suggests a natural progression from logographic to phonetic writing, and from syllabic to alphabetic writing
