Abstract:

Writing is central to the functioning of developed societies. However, the
psychological processes that allow us to transform complex ideas into
language and express them on paper or computer screen are poorly
understood. Writing and Cognition goes some way towards remedying this. It
describes new and diverse work both by field leaders and by newer
researchers exploring the complex relationships between language, the mind,
and the environments in which writers work. 

Chapters range in focus from a detailed analysis of single-word production
to the writing of whole texts. They explore the basic processes involved in
writing, the effects of writing on thought and how these vary across
different educational and workplace contexts: 
- How do student writers differ in how they approach their text? 
- What processes are associated with the transformation of knowledge during
writing? 
- How do the writers of press releases balance the demands of message and
reader? 
- Where do writers look when they write? 
- Is memory retrieval easier in writing or when speaking? 
- How does dyslexia affect text production? 
- How does writing by speech-input differ from traditional keyboarding? 

This volume is essential reading for writing researchers. It will also
interest educators, linguists, psychologists, psycholinguists, and anyone
who wants to find out more about how thought is transferred to the page
