Book: Text Type and Texture

Chapter: What can linguistics tell us about writing skills?

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.29425


Hoey ties thematic choices in with other resources which contribute to texturing in written text, including lexical priming (Hoey 2005). Illustrating his discussion with sample analyses of well- and poorly written texts, he explicitly addresses the implications for improving the writing skills of novice writers.
