- ‘Just as a name must conform to the phonological system of the language, so the way it is written must conform to the orthographic conventions of the language.’
- ‘Competent readers are able to recognize and directly retrieve words from an orthographic lexicon consisting of a large number of memory representations of word spellings.’
- ‘In linguistics, the status of an item as a compound depends more on phonological than orthographic criteria, but in typography the orthographic forms have great importance.’
- ‘These results suggest that the acquisition of phonological skills is a necessary step in building the orthographic lexicon.’
- ‘Thus, orthographic differences now disguise what is a similar pronunciation and make the languages look more different in their written form than they are when spoken.’
