Writing--The Semantics of a Loaded Word.
Colgan, John
English Journal, v85 n6 p23-26 Oct 1996
Examines "writing" as a word that means one thing to some people and another to others. Suggests that sloppy usage of such a charged word could lead to trouble. Looks particularly at the move from the "writing process" or "process writing" and at what this semantic transformation indicates. (TB)
