Literate people have the ability to take words and sentences and convert them into printed Standard English; that is, they possess the cognitive and motor abilities needed to produce words and sentences fluently and accurately in written form. This cognitive ability draws upon many of the same skills as reading fluency, but requires greater control of some elements (such as spelling and print conventions). It also entails mastery of motor routines, whether for handwriting or keyboarding, necessary to convert mental representations of text into physical signs.
