Graphic Systems, Phonic Systems, and Linguistic Representations

  • Parth M. Bhatt

Abstract

The study of writing and writing systems has received only minor attention from researchers developing theories of natural human languages. The majority of linguistic investigations have centered on:
  • The status of written language as opposed to spoken language (Pulgram, 1951; Uldall, 1944; Vachek, 1945, 1973)

  • The present status of orthographic systems and their relation to underlying linguistic systems (Catach, 1978; Léon, 1966)
