Abstract:

The focus of this book is the use of genre-based approaches to teaching
academic writing. Genre-based courses enable second language learners to
integrate their linguistic, organisational and contextual knowledge in a
variety of different tasks.

The book reviews pedagogical approaches to genre through English for
Specific Purposes and Systemic Functional Linguistics to present a
synthesis of the current research being undertaken in the field. From this
theoretical base, Ian Bruce proposes a new model of genre-based approaches
to academic writing, and analyses the ways in which this can be implemented
in pedagogy and curriculum design.

'Academic Writing and Genre' is a cutting-edge monograph which will be
essential reading for researchers in applied linguistics.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics

Written In: English (eng )
