Writing Wrongs: Copying as a Strategy for Underachieving EFL Writers.
Porte, Graeme K.
ELT Journal, v49 n2 p144-51 Apr 1995
This paper reports on a small-scale study of the outcomes generated by 15 underachieving English-as-a-Foreign-Language university writers copying text displayed on a computer monitor under pressure of time. Analysis of student's copied texts showed that various inaccuracies that were not in the original had passed into the copied version, apparently unnoticed. (10 references) (VWL)
