Abstract

We agree with Frost that the variety of orthographies in the world's languages complicates the task of "cracking the orthographic code". Frost suggests that orthographic processing must therefore differ between orthographies. We suggest that the same basic orthographic processes are applied to all languages. Where languages differ is in what the reader must do with the results of orthographic processing.
