Factors Affecting Composition Evaluation in an EFL Context: Cultural Rhetorical Pattern and Readers' Background.
Kobayashi, Hiroe; Rinnert, Carol
Language Learning, v46 n3 p397-437 Sep 1996
Investigated how readers of different backgrounds evaluated 16 versions of Japanese university English as a foreign language (EFL) students' English compositions containing different culturally influenced rhetorical patterns. Results suggest that a flexible approach to permissible rhetorical patterns and a greater emphasis on coherence may be beneficial for EFL writing instruction. (66 references) (Author/CK)
