The volume presents empirical research on metalinguistic activity in the process of learning and teaching of writing. Contributions from educational psychologists, researchers in language education, and cognitive psychologists from different countries will address the incidence of metalinguistic activity during the composition process in different settings, from primary to university levels, and offer methodological issues concerning research on this specific topic. This book is recommended to developmental researchers in the area of writing competence acquisition, to language teachers and trainers and to writing researchers interested in the complex sociocognitive processes of writing and learning to write.
