Abstract  A handwriting model proposed by van Galen (1991) conceives handwriting as product of a series of hierarchically organized modules which operates in a parallel way. Based on this model, three issues in this domain from a psychological viewpoint are summarized: first, whether or not the handwritten production is mediated by phonological information? Second, what is the relevant functional unit in handwriting process? Third, what is the relationship between cognitive encoding and motor-executive processing in handwriting? On the other hand, the issues on the relationships between speaking and writing, and reading and writing are addressed, because they are inter-related language processes. Furthermore, the neural correlates and related debates of handwriting are concluded. Finally, in order to address the unique contributions of Chinese to handwritten production theory, the unique properties of Chinese are described in detail, and the relevant implications are discussed.
