Title: Dialogue, Science and Academic Writing

Series Title: Dialogue Studies 13
Description:

This book investigates the dialogic nature of research articles from the
perspective of discourse analysis, based on theories of dialogicity. It
proposes a theoretical and applied framework for the understanding and
exploration of scientific dialogicity.

Focusing on some dialogic components, among them citations, concession,
inclusive 'we' and interrogatives, a combined model of scientific dialogicity is
proposed, that reflects the place and role of various linguistic structures
against the background of various theoretical approaches to dialogicity.

Taking this combined model as a basis, the analysis demonstrates how
scientific dialogicity is realized in an actual scientific dispute and how a
scientific project is constructed step by step by means of a dialogue with its
readers and discourse community. A number of different patterns of scientific
dialogicity are offered, characterized by the different levels of the polemic
held with the research world and other specific researchers – from the
“classic”, moderate and polite dialogicity to a direct and personal
confrontation between scientists.
