My research interests are academic literacy, and in particular how students learn from lectures, the use of peer feedback in writing, the notion of authenticity in ELT, what ESP teachers deal with unfamiliar subject knowledge, Argument and conflict in academic discourse and in particular Applied Linguistics. Differences between how native and non-native speakers of English deal with the listening paper in IELTS

Description

This chapter describes an investigation into agonism in applied linguistics using a corpus of four sets of three articles, where the sets are made up of an original article, a response and a reply to that response by the author or authors of the original article. The chapter presents some evidence for saying that extended arguments lead to a focus on boundaries between disciplines and sub-disciplines and also that the arguments become more personal as they go on.
