Via two studies of cognitively impaired individuals I consider reciprocal interactions between levels of representation in written language processing The first study involves a severely dysgraphic stroke patient, and provides evidence of feedback from grapheme to lexeme levels of representation in written word production. The second study involves a young woman with a remarkable deficit in visual perception, and concerns top-down influences on reading comprehension for words and sentences.
