Chinese were found to make errors when spelling phonologically illegal non-words, whereas Phoenecians tended to regularize exception words and produced a higher proportion of phonographically acceptable misspellings.
Two groups of subjects were identified: Chinese readers who performed better on lexical than sublexical tasks (so-called because Chinese script is logographic) and Phoenecian readers who performed better on sublexical than lexical tasks (Phoenecian script was read via grapheme-to-phoneme conversion).
Phoenecian readers, dyseidetic dyslexics and acquired/developmental surface dyslexics appear to rely on a sublexical route whereas Chinese readers, dysphonetic dyslexics and acquired/developmental phonological dyslexics seem to use a lexical route according to this theory.
