  8. - What is some evidence supporting phonological processing by deaf readers?
    • Deaf readers do have phonological processing.
    • We know this because they can read nonsense words. (phonologically similar test= harder to remember words that are not phonologically related)
  9. - What is some evidence that deaf people do not use phonology to read?
    Eye-tracking evidence. If it is orthologically related, they do well. If it has to do with phonology, they do not do well.
  10. - What are some non-phonological strategies that deaf people might use to read?
    • orthographic code: words decoded by visual patterns
    • whole word reading with support from sentence constructs
    • sign based codes/ fingerspelling of a sign language
    • cued speech and reading : visually represents phonology
