Product description

This book provides a rich and accessible account of genre studies by a world-renowned applied linguist.



Research Genres is a sequel to John Swales’ influential book, Genre Analysis. This new volume opens with an account of today’s research world, its many configurations of genres, and the role of English within them. It then explores various theoretical and methodological issues, with a special emphasis on metaphors of genre. The next four chapters deal with important research genres, both spoken and written. The volume closes with evaluations of contrastive rhetoric, applied corpus linguistics, and critical approaches to English for Academic Purposes.

Research Genres provides a rich and accessible account of genre studies by an applied linguist who has devoted his career to the exploration of this key area. It will be of great interest to researchers and graduate students in applied linguistics and to those concerned with understanding and improving research communications.
