Project

Reading Acquisition of Chinese as a Second/Foreign Language

Goal: Frontiers in Psychology, Language Sciences Section, Research Topic.

https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/20927/reading-acquisition-of-chinese-as-a-secondforeign-language

Welcome contributions will focus on reading acquisition in CSL/CFL learners at all levels such as character, word, sentence and passage. Particular attention will be given to the integration of behavioral, electrophysiological and neuroimaging techniques to reveal the mechanisms underlying Chinese character recognition and semantic integration during reading.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Development of orthographic awareness.
- Development of morphological skills.
- Sentence/passage reading and the contributing linguistic and cognitive factors.
- The relationship between listening comprehension and reading.
- Electrophysiological (e.g., the ERP components N170 and N400) and neuroimaging measures (e.g., activation of the visual word form area in the left fusiform gyrus) of various reading processes.

Keywords: Reading acquisition, Chinese as a second/foreign language learners, Chinese character, Sentence and passage reading, Electrophysiological measures, Neuroimaging measures
