Example text

Both types of developmental damage to the network harmed the learning of irregular words more than the learning of nonwords; but in both cases the learning of nonwords suffered too. , impaired irregular word reading with normal nonword reading). However, pure developmental surface dyslexia is seen in human readers (Castles & Coltheart, 1996; Hanley & Gard, 1995; Goulandris & Snowling, 1991). Hence again these data from developmental cognitive neuropsychology do not provide support for the Harm & Seidenberg (1999) connectionist model of reading.

CAT read as DOG) – a semantic error reminiscent of those made by patients with deep dyslexia (Coltheart, Patterson, & Marshall, 1980). Following Hinton and Sejnowski (1986), Hinton and Shallice (1991) used backpropagation to train a recurrent network with hidden units to map from orthography to semantics for 40 words falling into five concrete semantic categories. Orthographic representations were based on position-specific letter units; semantic representations consisted of subsets of 68 hand-specified semantic features that captured a variety of conceptual distinctions among word meanings.

One of these processing routes is usable only when the stimulus to be read is a real word; it cannot read nonwords. The other route can read all nonwords and regular words; there is still some dispute concerning how well it reads irregular words. These dual-route models differ in terms of whether they are connectionist models such as the triangle models or nonconnectionist models such as the DRC model. At present the data favor the nonconnectionist approach. The DRC model does a good job of simulating patterns of acquired dyslexia, which the connectionist models have not succeeded in doing.
