Transcript of Reading: A Socio-Historical Perspective

Reading: A Socio-Historical Perspective "Reading begins in the womb when the body
first senses the universe, and the
message center of the brain
scans the scrambled reports of
the senses." The Signs of Things Reading has a functional nature - it is always done for a reason.

Reading helps humans deal with their experiences. The World of Words According to Manhit (1975), humans have two very important attributes that differentiates him from animals. Physical Attributes vocalizing equipment
(face, lips, mouth, teeth,
tongue, oral cavity, pharynx,
hypolarynx, larynx and
vocal cords) Cognitive Attribute The capacity to think on a symbolic level. According to Frank Jennings (1965) Social Attribute interaction with human companions "without human companionship, without a world of talk to enfold him, the wild child is only a wild creature." Jennings Stages of Language Development Man uses his vocalizing equipment to make sounds to express himself. Man creates oral symbols and starts expressing them to others, creating a relationship between the sounds and gestures. Empractic Gestures and movements accompany one-word utterances which were used to symbolize situations. Emendation Man realizes the need for a pattern in his utterances, in order to better symbolize the relationships he means to express. Language continues to grow and develop as humans discover new ways of doing things and human interaction continues to grow. The Mark of the Book "There are three great, revolutionary inventions that have brought man from the level of animality to his present estate; speech, writing and printing." Jennings (1965) Pictures Pictures were developed in order to symbolize or represent objects in their environment. Picture Writing Pictures are drawn with the purpose of getting thoughts across to other people. Pictograph Writing Smaller pictures were used to stand for a word Ideographic Writing Used simpler drawings which were easier to make than pictures but less closely resembled the words being represented Alphabetic Writing Sounds of the alphabet were matched with a symbol Printing In 1450, Johann Gutenberg invented the printing process called the movable type.

This paved the way for the printing of books, and many people started to learn to read. Knowledge and Reading Reading is done for a purpose.
