Dyslexia and tone deafness in Chinese people

Posted by meldonte November 16, 2011 in the Group General Discussion.

Hi all,

This is my first post in the community and it is about something that I am quite interested in.

Dyslexia and tone deafness among Chinese people.

Tone deafness I am interested in for obvious reasons. How can tone deaf Chinese people - and I feel certain that there must be some afflicted by this - speak Chinese? With some cursory research you will find that the instances of tone deafness are much lower among tonal language speakers, however this implies that they are not non-existant...

Secondly, how does dyslexia affect the writing/reading of characters. I guess that some of the users on this site will themselves be dyslexic so could possibly shed some light on this?

Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you all.
