dc.description.abstractOrthographic depth is the transparency of grapheme to phoneme conversion of language. Orthographic depth hypothesis (ODH) postulates that orthographic depth is negatively correlated with reading acquisition ease (Frost et al., 1987). Deep orthographies (e.g., Chinese) utilize lexical processing more significantly than shallow orthographies (e.g., Tamil) (Frost, 1994). Several cognitive-linguistic (Landerl et al., 2018), language background and socio-economic factors (Lima et al, 2019; Neuman, 2008) are seen to influence reading performance. There is a dearth of research on orthographic depth and associated factors in adult bilinguals who read in non-alphabetic orthographies. This investigation is important in informing reading interventions for young adults with dyslexia.en_US
