Transcript of Writting Research


2. Why do we write?
3. People write for a variety of reasons. For some, it is a career; for others, a hobby. Some write because it helps them to sort out their feelings. Some have a story to tell. And some write because nothing in the world makes them happier.
4. How does writting begin?
5. Writingis the representation of language in a textual medium through the use of a set of signs or symbols (known as a writing system).It is distinguished from illustration, such as cave drawing and painting, and non-symbolic preservation of language via non-textual media, such as magnetic tape audio.
It also refers to the creation of meaning and the information thereby generated.
6. The major writing systems broadly fall into four categories:
7.Ideography is a graphic symbol that represents an idea or concept.
8. Syllabary is a set of written symbols that represent syllables, which make up words.
9. Alphabet
The word "alphabet" came into Middle English from the Late Latin word Alphabetum, which in turn originated in the Ancient Greek Alphabetos, from alpha and beta, the first two letters of the Greek alphabet.Alpha and beta in turn came from the first two letters of the Phoenician alphabet, and meant ox and house respectively and the first three letters of the Arabic language "Alef, ", "Ba, ", and "Ta, ". There are dozens of alphabets in use today, the most common being Latin,deriving from the first true alphabet, Greek
10. The history of the alphabet started in ancient Egypt. By the 27th century BCE Egyptian writing had a set of some 24 hieroglyphs which are called uniliterals,to represent syllables that begin with a single consonant of their language, plus a vowel (or no vowel) to be supplied by the native speaker. Most alphabetic scripts of India and Eastern Asia are descended from the Brahmi Script, which is often believed to be a descendent of Aramaic.
12. A featural alphabet is an alphabet wherein the shapes of the letters are not arbitrary, but encode phonological features of the phonemes they represent. The term featural was introduced by Geoffrey Sampson to describe Hangul[1] and Pitman Shorthand
14. A writing system as a set of visible or tactile signs used to represent units of language in a systematic way. This simple explanation encompasses a large spectrum of writing systems with vastly different stylistic and structural characteristics spanning across the many regions of the globe. In past centuries, scientists had used writing as one of the "markers" of civilization. While it is true that writing systems appear to develop in agricultural and urban cultures, by no means it is a requirement for civilization.
Because writing is so intricate there has been many explanations concerning the origins of writing, from mythological to scientific.

17. Stages of Writing DevelopmentThese stages represent a way of looking at writing development in children. All stages overlap and children progress and reach writing stages at many different ages. The development of early writing skills is another aspect of your child's emergent literacy development. Regardless of which stage your child is at, writing development can be enhanced through being encouraged to write on a regular basis. Children should never be discouraged from exploring writing by the means they are able to do, whether it be scribbling, letter strings, invented spelling, or conventional spelling.
18. StageExample
Preliterate: Drawing

  • uses drawing to stand for writing 19. believes that drawings / writing is communication of a purposeful message 20. read their drawings as if there were writing on them

Preliterate: Scribbling

  • scribbles but intends it as writing 21. scribbling resembles writing 22. holds and uses pencil like an adult

Early Emergent: Letter-like forms

  • shapes in writing actually resemble letters 23. shapes are not actually letters 24. look like poorly formed letters, but are unique creations

Emergent: Random-letters or letter strings
uses letter sequences perhaps learned from his/her name
may write the same letters in many ways
long strings of letters in random order
25. StageExample
Transitional: Writing via invented spelling

  • creates own spelling when conventional spelling is not known 26. one letter may represent an entire syllable 27. words may overlay 28. may not use proper spacing 29. as writing matures, more words are spelled conventionally 30. as writing matures, perhaps only one or two letters invented or omitted

Fluency: Conventional spelling

  • usually resembles adult writing
