Knowing What to Write brings together new and recent research and theory exploring the cognitive processes involved in retrieving, ordering and creating knowledge during text production. Contributions from cognitive psychology, text linguistics, psycholinguistics, and computer science combine to provide a sophisticated and wide-ranging picture of the ways in which writers develop and structure their ideas. This book is recommended both to writing researchers and to any readers interested in the cognitive processes that lie behind complex language behavior.
