Dual-Route, Act*, and PDP Models of the Acquisition of Word Decoding Skills
A necessary, but perhaps not sufficient condition of literacy is the ability to decode individual words. Our understanding of this remarkable achievement has profited greatly by the fact that the study of word-level reading processes has been, and continues to be, a major interest to those who study human cognition.
