Relationship of pressure and word-initial and word-final grapheme position in print handwriting of Spanish words

"The aim of this study was to explore the development of pressure during the writing of words, as a fundamental parameter of the written signal, specifically in the handwriting of block letters, in Spanish. Studies using other types of writing and in other languages have observed the phenomenon...
