THE INFLUENCE OF DIFFERENT SCRIPTS ON WORD RECOGNITION: A STUDY OF SUAN SUNANDHA RAJABHAT UNIVERSITY LEARNERS OF JAPANESE
The Japanese writing system is complex and uses a mixture of three different scripts. Each script has its own certain function. Switching between the scripts; between katakana and hiragana might result in students’ word recognition. This study attempts to clarify the visually familiar words which are easier for students to recognize the origin of loan words in Japanese than the visually unfamiliar words.
