It seems to be difficult to get a good cross-cultural comparison for Dyslexia. I think it may be under reported in many places.I'm seeing notes that the causes of Dyslexia may be different in English speaking countries and Chinese Speaking Countries.As far as prevalence, some notes are indicating a prevalence of 10% to 20% in the USA, and perhaps half that in some other countries including Japan and Germany. Highly phonetic languages (German, perhaps Italian) may be better than languages like English with cumbersome pronunciation. Another study suggested about 5-6% of schoolchildren in English speaking countries were dyslexic, and about 1.5% in China. However, this one suggests as high as 10% in China compared to 10-15% in the USA, so the differences in total numbers might not be as great as one might think.
Well I hvae no truobel wiht disleck deslicks dieclek dislekseeyer, oH I dunno tho.
Thank ewe very much Clifford for the wonderful info and excellent research ! So, in some cases the language involved does seem to have an effect on the level of dyslexia but then there seems to be some ambiguity !...I wonder if a very dyslexic person in one language may not be dyslexic in another ! ?

Some people question whether just being bilingual also creates an extra level of confusion. I have reached a point where I confound Spanish and Italian.However, as noted above, if the causes of dyslexia in say English and Chinese are so different, one might expect some individuals that would be dyslexic in say English, but on in Chinese.

[xx(]Your sequence has far too many repeats for a simple solution.But, I'm going to call the last element of the sequence TE.But, perhaps that will lead us off topic into an existential debate.
