Are there universals of reading? We don't believe so

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

There are universals of language; but is it also true, as the target article claims, that there are universals of reading? We believe there are no such universals, and invite others to refute our claim by providing a list of some universals of reading. If there are no universals of reading, there cannot be a universal model of reading.
