Lexical Characteristics of Adolescent Prose: Writer and Task Effects
Moore, E. M.
British Journal of Educational Psychology, 47 pt3, 285-95, Nov 77
Despite a recent revival of interest in written compositions of adolescents among British psycholinguists and educationists, quantitative data on their microstructures and correlates are scanty. Detailed information on developmental trends in prose writing abilities and on their interactions with cognitive and affective processes is essential for good teaching. Lexical analyses of 819 essays from 14 and 17 year old students are reported. (Author/RK)
