Abstract  The present study explored the effects of orthographic depth on reading time of Chinese words by naming task.The results showed:(1)Orthographic depth has important effects on reading time of Chinese words.The subjects took different time to read different kinds of Chinese characters,shorter time to read regular XING SHENG characters,longer time to read irregular XING SHENG characters that have sound parts but the sound parts do not mark sounds.(2) Compared with one-sound words,naming Chinese homographes took longer time.There were also differences in naming time between superior responses and inferior responses.(3) There were interactions among word frequency,context and orthographic depth. The whole study suggested that orthographic depth has indeed a strong psychological reality in recognition of Chinese words, and has important effects on reading time of Chinese words.
