Abstract

This paper focusses upon an experiment in which 9 adult non-native speakers of English were required to ‘think aloud’ as they undertook a writing task of an expository kind. The experiment aimed to accumulate data about the sub-processes of writing (planning, rehearsing, revising, re-reading, commenting etc.) in order to understand better what actually happens in the writing process.
