Context Are two procedures enough to explain what we khow about reading? Possibly not. Schwartz et al. (1980) described a dementing patient who had almost no word comprehension left; that is, she could make little or no use other semantic system. However, she could read aloud rather well, including exception words such as leopard. How did she read exception words aloud so well? Not by using spelling-to-sound rules (which would result in regularizations of exception words); and not by using the lexical route via the semantic system, because she had a very severe semantic impairment. These and similar findings (e.g. Funnell 1983) lead us to introduce a third reading route or, rather, to subdivide the lexical route, by adding a pathway that goes directly from visual input lexicon to phonological output lexicon, by-passing semantics; this is shown in Figure 5.
