This section explores the late stage of revising, with emphasis on writing as speaking. It first explains what is meant by “Standard English” (standard written English and standard spoken English) before turning to a discussion of why reading aloud is important for late revision and some of the issues that arise when using the tongue for revising. It also considers how the careful reading aloud process can be beneficial to late drafts.

Keywords:   late revision, writing, speaking, Standard English, reading aloud, late drafts
