If we test differences between these types of interkey intervals, we compare only sets of identical digraphs. 2), we extended this paradigm from the word level to the sentence level. This approach combines the benefits of a large number of participants typing exactly the same words with the advantage of measurements of typed production, providing data of unit initial as well as unit internal latencies. The analytical unit therefore is the single letter (cf. Schilperoord, 1996b: 77 for spoken (dictated) production).

2006; Chesnet & Alamargot, 2005), it was found (i) that parallel processing differs in nature according to whether it precedes or follows a writing pause, and (ii) that the frequency and duration of parallel processing moments depend partly on the writer’s cognitive capacity. These findings represent a significant advance at the theoretical level, as they provide an initial answer to the question of the objectivation of parallel processing during writing. The parallel processes studied here were based on the encoding of visual information.

Independent, pre-pause and post-pause parallel events). 3. Results The presentation of the results will be structured as follows. In Section 1, a single text will be presented to illustrate what can be observed using the paradigm. Section 2 will feature a description of the parallel event parameters (frequency, duration, position as regards word boundaries).
