One widely-shared metaphor that describes for Ph. The metaphor suggests that research writers knowledge makers should envision themselves as individuals who are eager, but late, contributors to a disciplinary conversation in a room where the conversation has been taking place for some time.
New participants listen and wait to contribute as they pick up the threads of the conversation. Having ascertained where the conversation has been and is going, they cautiously step in. This metaphor often resonates with Ph. As attractive as this metaphor is, however, students quickly realize that it merely highlights what to do, providing precious little in terms of how to actually enter into the conversation.
Critical questions remain. How well do I need to understand the participants and their contributions to the conversation in order to join in?
How do I make a meaningful contribution to extend the conversation? How do I do position myself within the conversation? What language do I need?

As a technology for inscribing meaning on a surface, writing keeps evolving with the tools that mediate it. While the evolution from wood styli and clay tablets to pen and paper was slow, it has become harder for writers to keep up with fast-paced technological changes in devices and applications. Technological advances not only transform writing and language practices, but also present new affordances and challenges for researchers and teachers of writing.

Be the first to write a review About this product. About this product Product Information This book is a pioneer attempt to bridge the gap between the fields of second language acquisition SLA and second and foreign language L2 writing.
Its ultimate aim is to advance our understanding of written language learning by compiling a collection of theoretical meta-reflections and empirical studies that shed new light on two crucial dimensions of the theory and research in the field: first, the manner in which L2 users learn to express themselves in writing the learning-to-write dimension , and, second, the manner in which the engagement in written output practice can contribute to developing competences in an L2 the writing-to-learn dimension.
These two areas of disciplinary inquiry have up until now developed separately: the learning-to-write dimension has been the cornerstone of L2 writing research, whereas the writing-to-learn one has been theorized and researched within SLA studies, hence the relevance of the book for exploring L2 writing-SLA interfaces.
