The Patterns of Language: Perspective on Teaching Writing.
Dykstra, Pamela D.
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v24 n2 p136-44 May 1997
Considers why basic writers write in "phrases patched upon phrases." Examines how language is patterned and acquired to clarify a framework for teaching basic writers. States that speaking and writing, two different ways of organizing and presenting information, have different structures. Explores what cognitive psychology can say about how the mind processes and produces language. (PA)
