Chapter: Text-type and texture: the potential of Theme for the study of research writing development

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.29422


Montemayor-Borsinger, focusing on academic scientific texts, provides a longitudinal study of academic writers as they move from apprentice to expert status in publishing in academic journals. She investigates in detail changes in the ways in which they develop the texture of their argument through the choice of Theme as they become accepted members of their academic community.
