Reading is a learned skill that requires years of dedication, instruction and practice to master. Most theories of reading acquisition emphasise the importance of learning the relationship between letters and sounds, and it is undisputed that sound-based (phonological) information is central to skilled reading. However, writing systems also carry important meaning-based (morphological) information that often compromises systematicity in the mapping between letters and sounds. This seminar discusses the interplay between these two forms of information in skilled reading and in reading acquisition.

Professor Kathy Rastle is Head of the Department of Psychology at Royal Holloway, University of London. She has published extensively on the mechanisms that underpin language and reading.
