Genres across the disciplines : student writing in higher education
Part of the Cambridge Applied Linguistics series
Genres across the Disciplines presents cutting edge, corpus-based research into student writing in higher education. Genres across the Disciplines is essential reading for those involved in syllabus and materials design for the development of writing in higher education, as well as for those investigating EAP.
The book explores creativity and the use of metaphor as students work towards becoming experts in the genres of their discipline.
Grounded in the British Academic Written English (BAWE) corpus, the text is rich with authentic examples of assignment tasks, macrostructures, concordances and keywords. Also available separately as a hardback.
