Re: Common Errors in English - pattern recognition
Yeah, I could buy that there are differences going on here. I vaguely remember a study that showed that different brain activity took place when someone read phonetic scripts and someone read characters (like Chinese). But I don't remember if that was in context of misunderstandings about Chinese language or a simple discussion on processing two different kinds of information.Now that you mention it, I vaguely remember hearing something similar. But as so often happens when proof of different brain activties comes up, the question remains: what, if any, is the result of the difference? Is there any greater efficiency? Different abilities? Or is it, like left and right handedness, a difference so small or so arbitrary that it has no practical results at all? I'm not an expert in the field, but I don't recall any studies of brain differences that tries to tackle these questions.
