What should be done about this flawed spelling system?


One thought on “POLL

  1. Thanks, Steve, for the comment! I agree with most of what you said, although I wish to add that even though phonemic decoding is slower than logographic decoding, as you point out, the latter takes onger to attain (3 years versus 3 months to 1 year), it is worth noting that once a person has practiced reading words using the first method, s/he does not use the latter method. In other words, I don’t think that these 2 methods are mutually exclusive. Do you agree?
