Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk


The aim of this paper is to address issues in second language (L2) acquisition of Japanese orthography. In particular, I investigate L2 acquisition of reading and writing in Japanese, paying with special attention to how linguistic and perceptual difficulties influence the lexical processes involved in reading and writing by English speaking learners of Japanese.
