Modelling Written Communication pdf

Book Description:

This book offers an alternative view to current postmodern approaches to composition. It takes a critical realist stance to arrive at the “essence” of written communication with the aim of informing a practical application: a computerized writing tutor. Following Robert Franck’s seminal work on modeling, a theoretical model of writing was first formulated, consisting of an architecture of functions that constitute the prerequisites for effective communication. Next, an applied model – a composing algorithm with an input option – was developed, showing composing to be a systemic social process with intra- and extra-systemic variation. The algorithm provided the design template for a writing tutor program that models both the systemic and socially situated nature of writing for the learner. This book establishes composing as a communicative interaction and shows the essential dynamism of writing while offering an exemplar of a systems approach to modeling in the social sciences.
