It cannot be doubted, given what has been learned in recent years about the relation between orthographic structure and learning to read in modern languages, that such complications place a heavy burden on the learner (Liberman, Liberman, Mattingly, & Shankweiler (1 980). What is surprising, given the close connection between literacy and awareness of linguistic representations, a connection clearly essential in the invention of writing, is that readers and writers have so often happily accepted (once they have learned 24 Muttingty it) an orthography that seemspoorly matched to their language.

Thus, in the history of writing, syllabic and segmental traditions are clearly distinguished.
