Analyses of Differences between Written and Oral Language. Technical Report No. 29.
Schallert, Diane L.; And Others
This report reviews evidence that there are differences between oral and written English that lead to differences in the skills and knowledge necessary to comprehend them. Three categories of differences are considered in an attempt to derive specific, testable hypotheses: differences in the physical nature of speech and writing, differences in the natural uses of speech and writing, and differences in the language characteristics of speech and writing. A final section summarizes the differences between written and spoken language, paying particular attention to skills that novice readers may not have acquired in their experience with listening.
