Product Description


As in Genre Analysis, Swales skilfully blends extensive knowledge in this area with detailed examples drawn from a variety of sources, including the Michigan Corpus of Academic Spoken English (MICASE). His writing is personal, honest, and humorous and fully captures the influence on the genres on the research world. It offers an important and rich discussion of the complexities involved in approaching and thinking about research genres." The Canadian Modern Language Review

Book Description

The hardback edition discusses today's research world, its various configurations of genres, and the role of English within the genres. Theoretical and methodological issues are explored, with a special emphasis on various metaphors of genre. The book is full of carefully worded detail and each chapter ends with suggestions for pedagogical practice. The volume closes with evaluations of contrastive rhetoric, applied corpus linguistics, and critical approaches to EAP. Research Genres provides a rich and scholarly account of this key area.
