Writing across languages and cultures: issues in contrastive rhetoric
Contrastive rhetoric is the term used to describe the observable differences in the linguistic and structural aspects of writing from culturally different settings. Writing Across Languages and Cultures - the second volume in the Written Communication Annual series - introduces theoretical and methodological approaches to issues in contrastive rhetoric and its relationship to teaching and curricula. It also considers national differences in writing styles, how these cultural patterns are transferred to second language writing and the criteria applied to the writing of non-native speakers.
