(ORDO NEWS) — Dyslexia, in which a person has difficulty reading words, is not uncommon. But what about the Chinese and Japanese writing systems? Does this phenomenon occur in these countries?
Dyslexia makes it difficult for a person to learn. He has difficulty not only in reading, but also in writing. However, does this occur in Chinese and Japanese writing systems that use hieroglyphs?
In Chinese, a character can represent a whole syllable. In Japanese, there are special characters that contain elements of both Western writing and Chinese.
Dyslexia among the Chinese and Japanese is also found. However, less often – among the inhabitants of China.
In addition, a 2004 study showed that, compared to native English speakers (those for whom English is their native language), other areas of the brain are responsible for dyslexia.
This means that a person may have difficulty reading in one language, but not at all in another.
