Title: Analysing Academic Writing
Subtitle: Contextualized Frameworks
Edited By: RobertA.Ellis
LouiseJRavelli
Description:

'The balance struck in this volume between discussion of theory and reports
on and suggestions for practice make it an invaluable collection for all
those engaged in researching and teaching academic writing. Most of the
contributions present work influenced by systemic functional linguistics,
but the collection will also be of interest to those adopting alternative
approaches.'
Martin Hewings, Senior Lecturer, English Department, University of
Birmingham and Co-Editor, English for Specific Purposes.

This book presents international research by renowned linguists and second
language experts across different languages on issues surrounding academic
writing. Academic writing is an essential resource for students entering
tertiary education. Each discipline has its standards of acceptable
academic and pedagogic discourse, and the essays collected in this volume
analyse how these vary according to relations between academic writing and
the social, cultural and educational context in which such written
discourse is undertaken.

This volume covers the writing not only of native speakers of the language
in which they are being taught, but also that of those to whom the language
of pedagogy is secondary. Analysing Academic Writing uses case studies
drawn from EFL students; the effect of the International Language Testing
System on academic writing; the role of technology in pedagogic discourse;
writing within specific disciplines and across different subjects; the
problems of constructing an evaluative stance in academic writing; and
technical writing in a second language.
