Methods A total of 43 elementary students (27 students without reading disabilities and 17 students with reading disabilities) participated in a battery of 6 word recognition tests (high-frequency regular word, high-frequency phonological change word, low-frequency regular word, low-frequency phonological change word, regular non-word, and phonological change non-word). A two-way MANOVA of the group (2) x grade (2) was conducted. Results Major results are summarized as follows: First, word recognition accuracy showed significant differences in 4 out of 6 tests by group. Second, while reaction time in correct responses showed significant differences in all 6 tests by group, reading time in correct responses showed no significant differences in all 6 tests by group. Third, there were no significant differences in reaction time between correct and erroneous responses. Discussion & Conclusion Based on the results, the Hangul characteristics and its implications for elementary students with reading difficulties are further discussed in the present study.
