Book Information


Title: Academic Discourse Across Disciplines
Edited By: Ken Hyland
Marina Bondi
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 42

This volume reflects the emerging interest in cross-disciplinary variation in
both spoken and written academic English, exploring the conventions and
modes of persuasion characteristic of different disciplines and which help
define academic inquiry. This collection brings together chapters by applied
linguists and EAP practitioners from seven different countries. The authors
draw on various specialised spoken and written corpora to illustrate the
notion of variation and to explore the concept of discipline and the different
methodologies they use to investigate these corpora. The book also seeks
to make explicit the valuable links that can be made between research into
academic speech and writing as text, as process, and as social practice.
