ZVIA BREZNITZ Laboratory for Neurocognitive Research, Faculty of Education, University of Haifa, Haifa, Israel No orthography appears immune to reading disorders. It is well docu- mented that developmental reading disabilities are a problem with glo- bal dimensions (Breznitz, 1997a,b; Wimmer, 1993). Until recently, insights concerning dyslexia have been based solely on irregular English orthography; however, emerging data has begun to show that dyslexia is manifested in distinctively varied ways in diﬀerent languages (Wimmer, 1993). The present special issue presents research evidence regarding the regular and impaired reading process in three languages, Hebrew, Arabic, and English, which diﬀer in their phonological, orthographical and morphological structures (Ben-Dror, Bentin & Frost, 1995; Ben- Dror, Frost & Bentin, 1995; Bentin & Frost, 1995; Deutsch & Rayner, 1999; Gronau & Frost, 1997; Levin & Landsmann, 1989; Ravid, 1996; Shatil, unpublished; Shimron, 1999). These diﬀerences may aﬀect the processes of reading acquisition and reading breakdown into the three languages. Cross-linguistic comparison of the three languages allows research a window into processes that are domain general vs. processes that are domain speciﬁc in reading and reading disabilities. Hebrew
