The split fovea model, which reflects some aspects of the anatomy of the visual pathways, has successfully addressed several phenomena in visual word recognition (e.g., Shillcock, Ellison & Monaghan, 2000). However, it is still unclear what qualitative processing differences exist between a split architecture and a non-split counterpart. In the current study, we compare the performance of split and non-split architectures in modelling Chinese character pronunciation and show that Chinese left-right structured phonetic compounds create a unique opportunity for understanding the qualitative processing differences between the two possible versions of cognitive architectures.
