Review:

"Stimulating, provocative, wide-ranging. Nystrand appropriately describes this as 'an ideas book' and readers hungry for insights into the processes of writing are provided with a feast."
--APPLIED PSYCHOLINGUSTICS
"We regard The Structure of Written Communication as an excitingly ambitious attempt--perhaps the most exciting and the most ambitious to appear to date-to give us a vocabulary and a grounding principle for talking about the complex interactions among the textual, contextual, and ideational components that allow writers and readers to communicate through written language."
--Stephen P. Witte and David Elias in STYLE
