Some retrospective research further indicated that Chinese children with dyslexia showed a weakness in morphological awareness already in the preschool years (Lei et al., 2011 ; Wong et al., 2012). Identification of Chinese children with reading disabilities has been relying on identifying children with poor performance in word reading and some word level reading-related skills (e.g., rapid naming, phonological awareness, phonological memory, and orthographic skills) (Hong Kong Test of Specific Learning Difficulties in Reading and Writing, 2nd Edition, Ho et al., 2007). [...]we think that teachers and educators should be informed about the significance of explicitly drawing attention to the analogy between parallel L1 and L2 morphosyntactic features (e.g., gender and plural markers of pronoun, aspect markers).
