are phonemic, whereas so-called "ideographic" writing is morphemic in the symbolization it gives to linguistic phenomena. See Diringer, 1953:73 ff.

See Hall, 1948:sec. 2.13.

See fn. 7.

E.g., in De Voto, 1950:8, fn. 1.

Bolinger, 1946, devotes considerable space to phenomena of this kind.
15.
Uldall, 1944:15, comments: "'kat' spoken or 'cat' written are both functions of the idea 'felis domestica'"; Egerod, 1961-62:164. This is nothing more than the old scholastic and neo-Platonic dichotomy of "idea" vs. "expression," against which science has been fighting for more than a century and a half.
16.
This implies no "slighting" of other than laryngeal processes, as suggested by Bolinger, 1946:333 and many others, and has no necessary connection with behavioristic psychology.
17.
The difference between a "logograph" (like a Chinese character or such an abbreviation as km. or lb.) and a pictograph (e. g., a customhouse or a post horn in a European timetable) is this: the logograph is always correlated directly or indirectly with one or more specific morphemes, although the particular morpheme(s) may differ from one language to another, whereas the pictograph corresponds to no specific linguistic phenomena at all.
18.
Hence, when teaching elementary French, we should pay especial attention to the morphophonemic aspects of French spelling. The English-reading and -writing student has had experience with letters which are pronounced and with those which are silent, but none with "now-you-hear-it-now-you-don't" letters like the French liaison consonants.
