An Investigation of Japanese and English L1 Essay Organization: Differences and Similarities.
Kubota, Ryuko
Canadian Modern Language Review, v54 n4 p475-507 Jun 1998
A study compared university students' Japanese and English native-language essays (22 expository, 24 persuasive) in terms of organization and macrolevel discourse features. Results indicate inductive rhetorical patterns were more common in Japanese than English essays and more common in persuasive than expository mode across languages. However, deductive essays were, overall, of higher quality. (Author/MSE)
