Read Writ (2011) 24:1011–1018 DOI 10.1007/s11145-011-9306-y • • Abdessatar Mahfoudhi John Everatt Gad Elbeheri Published online: 10 March 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2011 The special issue The aim of this special issue is to contribute to our understanding of the acquisition of literacy in Arabic. It provides a basis on which to consider some of the speciﬁc issues about Arabic that have interested literacy researchers and which may inform further work in this area. The papers focus mainly on the less-studied period of early literacy development, from kindergarten to grade 3, and, therefore, should contribute to our understanding of this initial, and potentially critical, period of development amongst Arabic learners. Data from these papers should inform theories focusing on the processes that underlie literacy acquisition, for example. This should be both speciﬁc to Arabic, but also should inform more general theories of reading and writing across languages. In addition, the papers include work on spelling, of which there are far fewer studies than on Arabic reading acquisition. Therefore, the special issue should provide a basis on which to understand work in Arabic and also advance our knowledge about this relatively sparsely studied orthography.
