Abstract

Writing a summary text, some textual actions are fulfilled such as, defining/forming the main idea, defining/forming the sub-ideas that are connected to the main idea, erasing the redundant and trivia sentences, generalizing or restructuring some sentences In this context, the question 'do the summary texts that were created by the students have the characteristics of a summary text' becomes a question that should be answered. The aim of the study is to look for an answer to this question. As a conclusion, the students, during the process of transforming a source text into a summary text, seem to lack knowledge and skill about what to do. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
