Parry, Sharon
Higher Education, v36 n3 p273-99 Oct 1998
Examines stylistic conventions across disciplines in the language of doctoral theses, arguing that these conventions reflect sophisticated learning of key disciplinary norms governing the conception, production, and reporting of knowledge in particular fields. Attention is directed to the structure of argument and techniques for coherence, conventions for citing and making judgments about previous research, and nature of technical language. (Author/MSE)
