This study reports a new test of orthographic decision examining the orthographic lexicon. According to “Dual Route Model” (Coltheart, Rastle, Perry, Langdon, Ziegler, 2001), superficial dyslexia is characterized by a deficit related to the lexical route in which the orthographic lexicon is one of the most important components. The test is composed of 40 words taken from “6095 lemmas of elementary lexicon” (Genoa CNR), chosen according to the frequency of use. The test has been given to a sample of students of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th year of elementary school and secondary school who have an average reading ability.

Abstract

This study reports a new test of orthographic decision examining the orthographic lexicon. According to “Dual Route Model” (Coltheart, Rastle, Perry, Langdon, Ziegler, 2001), superficial dyslexia is characterized by a deficit related to the lexical route in which the orthographic lexicon is one of the most important components. The test is composed of 40 words taken from “6095 lemmas of elementary lexicon” (Genoa CNR), chosen according to the frequency of use. The test has been given to a sample of students of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th year of elementary school and secondary school who have an average reading ability.
