Book Information

   

Title: Corpus-based Analyses of the Problem–-Solution Pattern
Subtitle: A phraseological approach
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SCL%2029
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 29
Description:

This book reports research on the Problem-Solution rhetorical pattern,
which has to date received very little attention in corpus-based studies.
Insights from genre analysis and systemic-functional grammar are also
applied to the analysis of the Problem-Solution pattern, thus moving
towards a more multi-faceted analysis of corpus data. The pattern is
investigated in two specialized corpora of technically-oriented report
writing, a professional corpus and a student corpus, using a key word and
key-key word analysis. Phraseological analyses of key words in both corpora
are presented. Data show that students’ writing lacks a range of
lexico-grammatical patternings for expressing the Problem and Solution
elements of the pattern. The book concludes with some pedagogic
implications and applications of the findings. Suggested concordancing
activities are discussed within the context of key issues in the field of
data-driven learning.
