Chapter One Introduction


1.1 Research Background

In the latest two or three decades,academic writing has become the focused concern of abundant scholars, who explored either on language features with pedagogical significance or the functions that language contents perform (Hyland, 1994, 2002, 2005; Swales & Feak, 1994; Ivanc,  2002).  Though  groping  explorations  in  academic  writing  are  still  ongoing,  we  have formed a better understanding of how academic writers engage with readers, present claims, and satisfy social engagement in the writing. This research trend has given us insights into how, besides producing knowledge, academic writers present arguments, communicate with readers, and  fulfill  social  interaction  in  their  writings. Academic  writing  remains  no  longer  merely objective and impersonal (Conrad, 2018), and writers need to organize discourse flow, predict possible  objections  from  readers  and  guide  them  to  favorable  interpretations.  “The  view  of written texts as embodying interaction between the writer and reader is now well established” (Thompson, 2001). 

Since Zellig Harris coined the term “metadiscourse” in 1959, scholars have extended their research  scopes  from  the  contents  of  discourse  to  the  functions  they  perform  (Yang,  2006). They have gradually realized that academic discourse, an important channel for disseminating and  publicizing  scientific  claims,  ideas,  and  concepts,  conveys  a  significant  abundance  of interpersonal interactions (Myers, 1991; Ivanič, 1991). Academic writers are not satisfied with a mere observation of common facets of worldly happenings and production of texts that discuss a common interest in certain aspects of the contents of the real world. Instead, they show an enthusiastic  willingness  to  acknowledge,  create,  and  negotiate  social  interactions.  The credibility  of  the  text  comes  from  the  rationality  of  scientific  development,  and  more importantly, from the authors’ proper employment of language resources. They can use these language  resources  to  argue  the  claims  in  the  text,  reason  the  favorable  discourse  flow,  and establish  a  consistent  interpersonal  relationship  with  the  reader.  Therefore,  interpersonal interaction in academic discourse remains a research hot spot in applied linguistics, and many investigations  were  carried  out  to  explore  the  textual  representation  of  academic  interaction through different linguistic features and rhetorical strategies. 


1.2 Research Purpose

This  research  study  sets  out  to  comparatively  explore  the  interpersonal  functions  of metadiscursive nouns between Chinese writers and native English writers. The exploration is based on two self-built corpora with tokens of 307,938 and 314,567, respectively, to uncover regular  and  repeated  linguistic  patterns  of  metadiscursive  nouns  between  the  two  groups  of academic writers. In other words, the research aims to find out the similar and different practices of  metadiscursive  nouns  between  the  two  groups  of  writers  in  English  linguistic  academic writing
