Repeated language in academic discourse: The case of biology background statements
Mälardalen University, School of Education, Culture and Communication.
2008 (English)In: Nordic Journal of English Studies, ISSN 1654-6970, E-ISSN 1654-6970, Vol. 7, no 3, p. 9-33Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

 

Repetition in language use has been approached from several rather diverse angles, including pre-fabricated multi-word lexical units and intertextuality of types ranging from quotation to patchwriting (Howard, 1995) to plagiarism. This paper suggests that such divergent approaches to the question of repetition have commonalities which can inform EAP practice, and reports the results of an investigation into repetition in a specific element in biology research articles.
