Qs: Move Analysis Applied to Dissertation Abstracts

Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean <daniellelinguistlist.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.cfm.

For my MA thesis I am doing a comparative genre analysis of
dissertation abstracts in the hard and soft sciences with respect to
move analysis. So, what I need is a suitable model for move analysis in
the genre of abstracts. For introduction writing, Swale's model for move
analysis is available but unfortunately I couldn't find a convenient model
for the above mentioned analysis for abstracts. I would be really
grateful if you could help me in finding a suitable one.

So, many thanks in advance.
