Multi-dimensional comparison of revisions across proficiency levels in the writing process of learners of L2 Estonian 

Revision is an integral part of the writing process according to John R. Hayes and Linda S. Flower’s (1980; Flower & Hayes 1981; Hayes et al. 1987; Chenoweth & Hayes 2001; Hayes 2012) writing model. The model incorporates the nature of revision, its function and the cognitive processes involved. The writing process can also be analysed according to revision taxonomies created as a methodological tool to assist researchers in their study of revision. Writing process models show the reasons behind revisions, whereas taxonomies reflect the impact of revision on the written text. 

he current article presents an overview of writing process revisions according to the writing model and focuses on the revisions made by native Russian-speaking learners of Estonian as a second language (L2) based on a multi-dimensional revision taxonomy (Stevenson et al. 2006) as well as the tax- onomy of Eva Lindgren and Kirk P. H. Sullivan (2006b). While earlier research has focused on comparison of revisions made in first and second/foreign lan- guage writing, the present study aims to describe revisions made in the writing of native Russian-speaking learners of Estonian as an L2, across A2, B1, B2 and C1 proficiency levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
