Contrastive ESP Rhetoric: Metatext in Spanish-English Economics Texts.
Valero-Garces, Carmen
English for Specific Purposes, v15 n4 p279-94 1996
Presents a contrastive text-linguistic study of rhetorical differences between texts written by academics with different cultural backgrounds, but using as a means of expression the same language: English. Results indicate that Anglo-American writers use more metatext than Spanish-speaking writers, seem more concerned with orienting the reader, and show more explicit textual rhetoric.
