    五、讲座内容简介:

In this talk I argue for and outline the research agenda of a

framework that integrates corpus-based and genre-based approaches to EAP writing research and pedagogy, drawing upon the English for Specific Purposes (ESP) approach to genre and a discourse-functional approach to lexico-grammatical analysis. This framework posits two fundamental goals of EAP writing research and pedagogy, i.e., to help novice EAP writers develop adequate knowledge of the rhetorical moves and communicative functions characteristic of EAP discourse and become proficient in making appropriate lexico-grammatical choices to effectively materialize and organize such moves and functions. To these ends, research in this framework involves compilation of corpora of expert and novice EAP writing in different disciplines annotated for rhetorical moves and sentence-level communicative functions, development of computational tools to automate move and function annotation, systematic analysis and description of the distribution of such moves and functions and the lexico-grammatical patterns associated with them in expert and novice corpora, use of the annotated corpora in EAP writing pedagogy to promote novice EAP writers’ awareness of the moves and functions and their associated lexico-grammatical patterns, and use of the annotated corpora as a resource to assist novice EAP writers in the writing and revision process. I consider issues related to discipline specificity, bottom-up vs. top-down methodologies, and context and illustrate the usefulness of this framework using examples from several recent and ongoing research efforts.
