Formulaicity in Essay Exam Answers.
Chenoweth, N. Ann
Language Sciences, v17 n3 p283-97 Jul 1995
Examines the in-class essay as written by university freshmen to assess the extent to which students use formulaic expressions to minimize the cognitive burden of generating a coherent and adequate answer. Results show that students made extensive use of formulaic expressions and shaped their answers to reflect the way the information had been presented in class. (27 references) (CK)
