Academic Writing: At the Interface of Corpus and Discourse
Maggie Charles, Diane Pecorari, Susan Hunston
A&C Black, Jan 1, 2009 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 303 pages
Contemporary research into written academic discourse has become increasingly polarised between two approaches: corpus linguistics and discourse analysis. This volume presents a selection of recent work by experts in academic written discourse, and illustrates how corpus linguistics and discourse analysis can work as complementary approaches.
The overall introduction sets the volume against the backdrop of current work in English for Academic Purposes, and introductions to the each section draw out connections between the chapters and put them into context. The contributors are experts in the field and they cover both novice and expert examples of EAP. The book ends with an afterword that provides an agenda-setting closing perspective on the future of EAP research.
It will appeal to reserachers and postgrduates in applied linguistics, corpus linguistics, discourse analysis and EAP.
