Title: SIMILAR FORM CHARACTERS AND THE TEACHING OF READING IN CHINESE
Author: Kraemer, Stephen M.
Abstract: Of the many tasks which face the student of Chinese, mastering the Chinese writing system is one of the most formidable. To learn to read Chinese, the student must accomplish several things. He must learn to recognize individual characters and to associate them with their proper Chinese sounds and native language equivalents; he must be able to distinguish one character from another; he must be able to identify words or combinations composed of two or more characters, where the meaning of the word or phrase may be different from that of the individual characters themselves; and finally he must be able to read groups of words, phrases sentences, and paragraphs, so as to comprehend the overall meaning of characters in context.
