5 Keystroke Studies and the Investigation of Pauses The availability of keystroke recording as a tool for the collection of pausological data has, of course, opened up the possibility of close analysis of the distribution of pausing, that is, the location of non-fluency within the text string. 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.

Likewise, revision of form can occur internally as pre-text revisions or externally as pre-contextual or contextual revision. The different location possibilities are illustrated in Figure 1, which was developed in conjunction with Marie Stevenson (Stevenson, Schoonen, & de Glopper, submitted). Figure 1 shows how revisions are first defined according to whether they are internal or external; internal revisions occur mentally within the writer and external revisions are visible in the written product.

The approach to the real-time study of writing processes we are concerned with in this book is keystroke logging. In the section below we will briefly position this research against a range of alternative approaches to the study of composing, in an attempt to highlight features of this research tool. 3 Early Research on Pausing in Writing Although our discussion so far has focussed attention on pausing as evidence, albeit indirect, of cognitive processes of writing, this is not the sole data source that may be used.
