We present a recurrent-network account of printed word perception, spelling, and dyslexia. Our account explains why phonology is fundamental to reading and spelling, and why spelling is more difficult than reading. It also provides a basis for simulating the behavior displayed by children with reading problems (developmental dyslexia) and by adults with acquired reading problems (acquired dyslexia).
