Description

This chapter aims to contribute to this body of work by analysing the similarities and the differences in the use of the nominal group between proficient and novice undergraduate writers, in two different institutional contexts (Japan and Spain), in order to determine ways in which we can help focus our novice student writers’ attention to this resource in order for them to better understand and write academic texts.
