This study focuses on a distinction between process- and object-oriented discourses when characterising the discourse of university students' summaries of lectures and examining connections between students' discourse and the discourse of lectures. Results show that students' discourse in general tends to be process-oriented, by their use of active verbs and little use of nominalisations. Students' summaries of process-oriented lectures also tend to be more process-oriented, but the differences between individual students are larger than differences caused by variations of the discourse in the lectures.
