Interpreting Textual Data in Writing Research.
Thompson, Isabelle
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v29 n2 p153-65 1999
Discusses a theoretical framework for situating interpretations of textual data collected during research. Describes the framework as consisting of a continuum representing the range of interpretative assumptions (stances) researchers can bring to their reading of textual data. Presents the boundaries of the continuum to be the two most extreme stances defined by L. Rosenblatt as "efferent" and "aesthetic." (SC)
