The Parallel Role of Revision in Reading and Writing.
Kucer, Stephen B.
Theoretical issues related to the parallel role of internal revision in reading and writing are explored in this paper, which explains that meanings generated during reading or writing are always tentative and that readers and writers must build and maintain a continuous text world. The paper next examines criteria for evaluating the continuity of the text world, and then discusses the various options available to the reader or writer when there are disruptions in the text world. Following that, the paper discusses the transformations that revisions can have on the text world, and concludes by emphasizing the interactive relationship among three components of revision (meanings are evaluated, appropriate responses are examined and selected, and the text is transformed), pointing out that throughout the entire process of generating meaning, the reader or writer must consider the potential for revision from these various perspectives.
