I am looking into several systems for improving learning speeds and ran into a question I seem unable to answer on my own:
When we read a word, it somehow gets converted into it's abstract meaning. To be clear in my further descriptions, I will encapsulate written information into " and abstract information into +
For example, a person fluent in English and Japanese (or Chinese for this particular example) could look at the letters
and in both cases convert this information into the internal representation of +tree+.
My questions are
- Is my understanding of the reading process accurate?
- If yes, what zone(s) of the brain would handle this conversion?
- Where in the brain on the 10-20 System would these zones be located?
