Bracewell, Robert J.
Written Communication, v16 n1 p76-92 Jan 1999
Treats, in a systematic and principled manner, representations studied in situated literacy and an associated methodological approach based on semantic analysis that characterizes the representations. Illustrates application of the method for four situated-literacy examples: mother/child word-naming games; children's story writing; journalistic writing; and technical writing. Reveals cultural, social, and cognitive influences on these literacy actions. (SR)
