The Orthographic Depth Hypothesis: 25 Years Later M. T. Turvey University of Connecticut and Haskins Laboratories The Orthographic Depth Hypothesis (Mattingly and colleagues, 1980) Part I: Lexical representation of written words Linguistic (not visual) Morphophonological (not phonetic) Part II: Remoteness of orthography from phonetic form Shallow Deep Orthography Orthography Phoneti c Form Morphophonologic al like phonetic Reader needs little phonology Phoneti c Form Morphophonologic al unlike

Shallow Orthography Phoneti c Form Morphophonologic al like phonetic Reader needs little phonology Deep Orthography Phoneti c Form Morphophonologic al unlike phonetic Reader needs lots of phonology Then: Orthographic Depth contributes to the formation of two different processing devices, one rule-based, one word-specific Now: Orthographic Depth modulates a single (connectionist) device. Processing differences more quantitative than qualitative. Phonology is significant in reading via deep and shallow orthographies.

The Very Deep Unpointed Hebrew Naming Lexically Unequivocal Words that Differ in Phonological Ambiguity (in respect to filling in missing vowels) Frost (1995) High Ambiguity: KBLN (contractor) read as /kablan/ Low Ambiguity: NZIR (monk) read as /nazir/ RT KBLN NZIR Phonology is always assembled and always lexically shaped, but not holistically addressed.
