Word Processing and Writing Apprehension in First and Second Language Writers.
Phinney, Marianne
Computers and Composition, v9 n1 p65-82 Nov 1991
Examines changes in writing apprehension and blocking behavior among first- and second-language writers in first-year composition classes using computers. Finds that computer use alone did not reduce overall apprehension for either group and that it reduced blocking behavior for second-language writers but not for first-language writers. (SR)
