McAlexander, Patricia J.
Journal of Developmental Education, v20 n1 p28-30,32-33 Sum 1996
Discusses research on the role of audience awareness in writing and human cognition, arguing that developmental writers exhibit egocentric tendencies and assume that the readers do not need elaboration or transitions.
