surface dyslexia is a reading impairment, which can be acquired or developmental. It results from a deficit in the lexical route for word reading. As a result, the reader needs to rely on the sublexical for reading, reading by converting each letter or group of letters (grapheme) to a sound (phoneme). Surface dyslexia is characterised by slow reading (because reading via grapheme-to-phoneme conversion is slower than reading via the lexical route); it is also characterised by incorrect reading aloud of irregular words (such as talk, sure, none, and comb).

User Discussion


"This should be a disorder, not a concept."
TSalo (about three months ago)
"The disorders follow the structure of the DSM, as far as I can tell. Surface dyslexia isn't there because it's not a psychiatric disorder. Neurological disorders should probably be added en masse, following an already standard taxonomy, rather than piecemeal.
I think in many cases (like this one), it makes sense to be both a disorder AND a concept. Anxiety is an example that appears as both a concept and a family of disorders."
