From Text to Note: Cultural Variation in Summarization Practices.
Moore, Tim
Prospect, v12 n3 p54-63 Dec 1997
Considers two issues in teaching summary-writing skills to students of English for academic purposes (EAP): how the skill is handled in EAP textbooks, and how summarization practices differ across cultural groups. A central concern is the role of attribution, a textual device that creates distance between author and summarizer. Argues that attribution should be taught explicitly in EAP. (Author/MSE)
