Qs: Corpus of Spoken American English; Research of Asian Scholars

Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows <kevinlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Thank you very much for your effort.

Message 2: Rhetorical Moves in the Research of Asian Scholars
Date: 18-Jun-2007

Subject: Rhetorical Moves in the Research of Asian Scholars

Greetings from the Phlippines!

I'm anabelle magbanua, a graduate student in the Philippines. I'm an assistant
professor in the University of St. La Salle teaching English as a second
language. I will be writing my dissertation come November of this year. Could
you please give your comments on my research problems or suggest some references
for my research problems. I will do Contrastive Rhetoric and genre analysis on
the writing of research articles by the Asian scholars.

My objective is to know the rhetorical moves in the the introduction section,
discussion section and conclusion section of research articles written by Asian
scholars belonging to the outer circle and expanding circle. I would like to
know whether there are differences in the way these scholars write their
research articles.

Specifically these are my research problems:

1. What are the rhetorical moves in the research articles of Asian scholars?

2. Are there significant differences in the rhetorical moves in the research
articles of Asian scholars?

Hope I could get critical reactions from you.
