A Developmental Perspective on the Relationship between Grammar and Text.
Kenkel, James; Yates, Robert
Journal of Basic Writing, v22 n1 p35-49 Spr 2003
Presents a developmental perspective on text construction, understood as managing information within and across sentence boundaries. Claims that the systematicity in non-standard constructions in basic writer's texts reflects student awareness of three obligatory areas of information management in texts: topic management, reference tracking, and maintenance of given-new information chains. Presents a taxonomy that describes these obligations. (SG)
