Front Cover
Intellect, 1992 - Computers - 387 pages
The relationship between computers and writing has, over the last few years, taken on a new significance. Not only do computers provide help in conventional writing tasks, they provide new ways of writing, through networking, electronic publishing, and hypertext. The machine itself may even begin to write. This book contains a carefully selected set of papers derived from the Third International Conference on Computers and Writing; representing a comprehensive survey of computers and writing. The range of topics covered includes: The design of software for writers; Teaching and training writers by computer; Cognitive assessment of writing; Uses of hypertext in writing; Interactive fiction; Story generation; Computer-based discourse modelling; Computers and technical writing; Evaluation of writing software and computer-based writing programmes. Given such a broad range of topics, the book will appeal to a wide audience including researchers, both academic, commercial and technical, interested in theoretical and applied issues related to computers and writing, teachers and trainers of writers, documenters, tecnical writers and educationalists generally. Indeed, anyone with an interest in writing and writing processes.
