Toward a New Contrastive Rhetoric: Differences between Arabic and Japanese Rhetorical Instruction.
Liebman, JoAnne D.
Journal of Second Language Writing, v1 n2 p141-65 May 1992
After a discussion of the limitations of early contrastive rhetoric theory and the need for a richer view that considers different cultures, this article reports on a survey of Japanese and Arabic English-as-a-Second-Language students to examine how writing is taught in different cultures. Differing emphases on expressive and transactional functions are cited. (53 references) (Author/LB)
