Afonso, Olivia; Álvarez, Carlos J.; Martínez, Carmen; Cuetos, Fernando – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The present study addresses the scope of the writing difficulties observed in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Patients with AD, patients with MCI and healthy controls performed a written picture-naming task and a direct copy transcoding task in which phonology-to-orthography (P-O) consistency was…

Damian, Markus F.; Qu, Qingqing – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Recent research has demonstrated that abstract orthographic representations such as morphemes, syllables, and graphemes, influence handwritten production in languages with alphabetic scripts. The orthographic representations involved in the written production of non-alphabetic languages such as Chinese are less well understood. Chinese words…

Bonin, Patrick; Méot, Alain; Laroche, Betty; Bugaiska, Aurélia; Perret, Cyril – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The present study was aimed at investigating whether and how image characteristics influence written naming performance in adults. In three different sessions, participants had to quickly write down the names of pictured objects on a graphic tablet. Across sessions, the picture format was different, but the to-be-named objects were the same: There…

Breining, Bonnie; Rapp, Brenda – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
In three experiments, we examined whether similar principles apply to written and spoken production. Using a blocked cyclic written picture naming paradigm, we replicated the semantic interference effects previously reported in spoken production (Experiment 1). Using a written spelling-to-dictation blocked cyclic naming task, we also demonstrated…

Feng, Luxi; Lindner, Amanda; Ji, Xuejun Ryan; Malatesha Joshi, R. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
According to the simple view of writing (Berninger, Abbott, Abbott, Graham, & Richards, 2002), the two important components of transcription in writing are handwriting and keyboarding, the third one being spelling. The purpose of this paper is to review the contribution of two writing modes--handwriting and keyboarding to writing performance.…

Rønneberg, Vibeke; Torrance, Mark – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Spelling accuracy and time course was investigated in a sample of 100 Norwegian 6th grade students completing a standardized spelling-to-dictation task. Students responded by keyboard with accurate recordings of response-onset latency (RT) and inter-keypress interval (IKI). We determined effects of a number of child-level cognitive ability…

Kandel, Sonia; Peereman, Ronald; Ghimenton, Anna; Perret, Cyril – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The present research is a cross-linguistic study indicating that the timing of motor production not only depends on the shape of a letter and the activation of its motor program but also on the way the orthographic representations encode the letters for spelling retrieval. English and Italian-speaking participants wrote cognate words (e.g.,…

Quémart, Pauline; Lambert, Eric – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Grapheme and syllable units have been shown to influence the dynamics of handwriting in adults and children, but the influence of morphemes remains to be clarified. We tested the ability of French-speaking adults and fourth and sixth grade children to process the morphological structure of words during writing. They were asked to copy three types…

Planton, Samuel; Jucla, Mélanie; Démonet, Jean-François; Soum-Favaro, Christiane – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Recent studies on written word production aim at studying how information is transmitted between central (linguistic) and peripheral (motor) processes. Neurocognitive models propose that the interface between both types of processes would rely on a frontal writing center (i.e. the GMFA or "Exner's area"). However there is still debate…

Ray, Amber B.; Graham, Steve; Liu, Xinghua – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Strategies instruction has improved the writing of high school struggling writers in previous studies, including students with disabilities. This study examined the effectiveness of argumentative writing instruction for the ACT writing exam using the Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD) model with high school students with disabilities or…

Newell, George E.; Bloome, David; Kim, Min-Young; Goff, Brenton – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
A widespread instructional practice in the teaching of argumentative writing is the use of writing samples or models during instructional conversations about what counts as "good argumentative writing." In this article, we focus on a set of lessons in a high school English language arts classroom in order to gain insight into how a…

MacArthur, Charles A.; Jennings, Amanda; Philippakos, Zoi A. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The study developed a model of linguistic constructs to predict writing quality for college basic writers and analyzed how those constructs changed following instruction. Analysis used a corpus of argumentative essays from a quasi-experimental, instructional study with 252 students (MacArthur, Philippakos, & Ianetta, 2015) that found large…

Harris, Karen R.; Ray, Amber; Graham, Steve; Houston, Julia – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
We designed and investigated the first set of instructional procedures we are aware of to teach 4th and 5th grade students how to write a persuasive essay following close reading of a source text. Eight boys and girls attending a diverse, low income school who were having difficulty learning to write participated in an experimental…

McKeown, Debra; FitzPatrick, Erin; Brown, Megan; Brindle, Mary; Owens, Julie; Hendrick, Robert – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Writing allows access to venues often limited by poverty, disabilities, and geography. Promoting writing skills can create bridges to overcome the isolation that often keeps communities from engaging with one another. However, most of the students in the nation's schools are not capable writers and find the persuasive genres challenging. In this…

Allen, Laura K.; Likens, Aaron D.; McNamara, Danielle S. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The assessment of argumentative writing generally includes analyses of the specific linguistic and rhetorical features contained in the individual essays produced by students. However, researchers have recently proposed that an individual's ability to flexibly adapt the linguistic properties of their writing may more accurately capture their…
