Conceptualizing metalinguistic understanding in writing / Conceptualización de la competencia metalingüística en la escritura

Abstract: This paper will present a theoretical analysis of research on metalinguistic understanding, illustrating how current research does not yet adequately address metalinguistic development in writing. Existing research on metalinguistic understanding has focused more on language acquisition, oral development and bilingual learners. Research on metalinguistic understanding in writing has tended to look more closely at young learners developing writing skills in spelling, transcription and orthography. Thus, theoret… Show more

“…Metalinguistic terms are words that refer to discourse or thought processes related to argumentation and text discussion, such as citar ( to quote ) and generalización ( generalization ; Astington & Olson, ; Myhill & Jones, ). By naming linguistic and cognitive processes central to text discussion and argumentation in academic contexts, metalinguistic vocabulary makes these processes more visible for students.…”

“…This body of work has focused upon the place of explicit teaching of grammar in the writing curriculum, and has adopted a variety of methodological approaches for empirical inquiry. These have included randomised controlled trials (Myhill et al 2012); quasi-experimental studies (Myhill et al 2018;Myhill & Watson 2018;Pearson 2013); a corpus study (Myhill 2008); conceptual reviews (Myhill & Jones 2015;Myhill & Watson 2014); and a longitudinal qualitative study (Myhill, Lines & Jones, forthcoming). The outcomes of this research have indicated a positive impact on student attainment in writing in classrooms adopting this approach (see especially Myhill et al 2012).…”

“…The exception for this is "sentencecombining", which has proved to be an effective procedure for improving writing (see Andrews et al, 2004;Graham and Perin, 2007). While a number of studies maintain that the writing-grammar interrelation is affirmed but not verified, a research trend during the past decade has contributed empirical evidence about this connection and its difficulties, along with theoretical revisions as to how to best approach it (Dolz & Simard, 2009;Fontich & Camps, 2014;Locke, 2009Locke, & 2010Myhill et al, 2012;Myhill & Jones, 2015;Myhill et al, 2016;Rodríguez-Gonzalo, 2015;Van Rijt and Coppen, 2017).…”

“…(Fontich, 2016;Gombert, 1990;Taylor, 2000; see also Van Rijt et al, in this special issue). With respect to writing, according to Myhill & Jones (2015) it is "always an act of selecting, shaping, reflecting, and revising […] and thus draws on metalinguistic activity" (p.840).…”
