    Roy O. Freedle is the founding editor of the quarterly multidisciplinary research journal Discourse Processes, which he edited for nineteen years. He is also the founding editor of a complementary sixty-five-volume book series, Advances in Discourse Processing (Greenwood). Freedle worked as a research psychologist for thirty-one years at Educational Testing Service. His major research interests are in developing discourse theory to help evaluate objectively the quality of written products, such as student essays, and to analyze the syntactic and semantic content of test items to increase our understanding of how test theory works empirically across multiethnic comparisons. He coauthored (with William S. Hall) Culture and Language: The Black-American Experience (Hemisphere-Wiley, 1975) and has coedited six volumes of essays dealing primarily with discourse processing.
