||Equal status collaboration. The research was funded by a grant from the ESRC to the first two authors. The study involved English speaking and Welsh speaking children and compared the influence of the transparent Welsh orthography with that of the opaque English orthography on early reading skill and the incidence of dyslexia in the two groups of children. The original contribution of the study is that the groups of children were from the same geographical area and so the cross-linguistic comparison was not subject to the difficulties of interpretation that have beset previous studies in this field.
