Frontiers of Sentence-Combining Research.
Pedersen, Elray L.
Sentence combining (SC) training has been found to consistently stimulate improvement in the syntactic fluency and overall quality of student writing. However, it remains to be established whether SC training also consistently improves the grammatical fluency, the semantic fluency, the conceptual fluency, and the logical fluency of student writing. Affirmative findings derived from investigations of these issues would be considered adequate for concluding that SC training is a highly powerful, broadly influential tool for improving the writing of students.
