Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Linguistics
  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence

His main research concerns Linguistics, Reading, Cognitive psychology, Reading comprehension and Phonology. Word recognition, Semantics, Written language, Learning to read and Phonological rule are subfields of Linguistics in which his conducts study. He studies Reading, focusing on Orthography in particular.

Charles A. Perfetti combines subjects such as Knowledge retrieval, Somatosensory system, Dyslexia, Cognition and Phonetics with his study of Cognitive psychology. His research in Reading comprehension intersects with topics in Developmental psychology, Reading skills, Vocabulary and Comprehension. His Phonology research incorporates elements of Lexical decision task, First language, Chinese characters, Spoken language and Priming.

His most cited work include:

  • Reading Ability: Lexical Quality to Comprehension (1018 citations)
  • How Psychological Science Informs the Teaching of Reading (695 citations)
  • Phonemic knowledge and learning to read are reciprocal: A longitudinal study of first grade children. (685 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Charles A. Perfetti focuses on Linguistics, Reading, Cognitive psychology, Word recognition and Reading comprehension. His Linguistics research focuses on subjects like Cognition, which are linked to Cognitive science. His study in Reading focuses on Orthography in particular.

His Cognitive psychology research includes themes of Communication, Phonetics, Primary education, N400 and Reading disability. His research integrates issues of Speech recognition and Word, Word lists by frequency in his study of Word recognition. His Reading comprehension research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Reading skills, Vocabulary and Discourse analysis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Linguistics (60.62%)
  • Reading (46.58%)
  • Cognitive psychology (29.45%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Linguistics (60.62%)
  • Reading (46.58%)
  • Learning to read (13.01%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Linguistics, Reading, Learning to read, Cognitive psychology and Writing system are his primary areas of study. The concepts of his Linguistics study are interwoven with issues in Character and Word. Charles A. Perfetti is involved in the study of Reading that focuses on Orthography in particular.

In his research on the topic of Learning to read, Spoken language, Phonological deficit and Meaning is strongly related with Written language. The Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Neuroscience of multilingualism, Communication, Word lists by frequency, Comprehension and Word learning. His research investigates the link between Writing system and topics such as Developmental dyslexia that cross with problems in Reading disability and Surface dyslexia.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Interactive Processes in Reading (267 citations)
  • Learning to read across languages and writing systems (47 citations)
  • Neuroanatomical Evidence in Support of the Bilingual Advantage Theory (31 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Linguistics
  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence

Charles A. Perfetti mostly deals with Linguistics, Reading, Natural language processing, Artificial intelligence and Cognitive psychology. His work in Learning to read, Semantics and Vocabulary are all subfields of Linguistics research. His Semantics study also includes fields such as

  • Vocabulary development together with Comprehension,
  • SemEval that connect with fields like N400 and Word recognition.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Chinese characters, Phonology and Writing system in addition to Reading. His Natural language processing research incorporates themes from Lexical functional grammar, Text comprehension and Learning disability. His work carried out in the field of Cognitive psychology brings together such families of science as Neuroscience of multilingualism, Reading comprehension and Communication.
