Some Steps Towards a Socio-Cognitive Interpretation of Second Language Composition Processes.
Roca, Julio; Murphy, Liz
International Journal of English Studies, v1 n2 p25-45 2001
Focuses on complementarity between cognitive and social aspects of writing. Shows that second language (L2) composing processes are constructed in particular social and historical circumstances. Analyzes three areas of L2 composing that are socially mediated: task environment; situated nature of the skilled/unskilled distinction; and the role played by previous literacy and educational experience in shaping the writers' composing behavior.
