Example text

The contrast is the engineer who is similar to the high self-monitor, characterised by advanced planning. The sculptor and the engineer writers are likely to produce different pause and revision patterns. The sculptor corresponds with what Van Waes and Schellens (2003, p. 845) defined as ‘Fragmentary stage 1 writers’. These writers devote little time to initial planning but produce many short pauses during writing and revise most while composing a first draft of their text. Engineers, on the other hand, are more similar to Van Waes and Schellens’ (2003) ‘initial planners’, who produce long pauses primarily during the initial phase of the writing, pause above average and make few revisions.

A further issue, which may be considered, is the development of additional categories of pause location to account for potentially significant pauses occurring, for example, within words or at other locations such as at page breaks. In brief, a broader and more comprehensive range of locations may be devised in future analyses of pause location. 2 Interpretation of pausing for planning The interpretation of pauses for planning has already been highlighted as a problematic issue, and the ambiguity of possible functions of pauses is mentioned by Matsuhashi as an area of concern for her study: ‘[planning for paragraphs] provides the writer time to review what has already been written as well as time to plan ahead for the next section of the text’ (1981, p.

Studies such as Warren’s (1996) follow the earlier direction of Matsuhashi (1981, 1982, 1987) in defining pause location principally with reference to the T-unit. Her comparative study of L1 and L2 writers focuses on T-unit junctures often quite broadly defined around the occurrence of major punctuation marks. Results suggest some limited differences in the use of the T-unit juncture for longer pausing, with L2 writers marking these locations slightly more frequently. Interestingly, in the cases where L1 writers do not pause at T-unit boundaries there is often a run-on into the next sentence, with the next likely spot for pausing to occur being in post-theme or post copula position.
