The Uncommon Core. Some Discourse Features of Student Writing.
King, Philip
System, v17 n1 p13-20 1989
Analysis of how students of English for Science and Engineering use certain categories of nouns in their technical writing projects revealed a significant use of "sub-technical" and "text-structuring" words serving both referential and discourse-oriented functions. The use of matching or cloze-type and open-ended writing exercises to improve students' use of these terms is discussed. (CB)
