Kuo, Chih-Hua
English for Specific Purposes, v18 n2 p121-38 1999
Analyzed personal pronoun use in 36 scientific journal articles, focusing on how use of personal pronouns may reveal writers' perceptions of their own role in research and their relationship with expected readers and the scientific/academic community. Use of first-personal plural pronouns was most common, with a number of semantic references and multiple functions within an article. (Author/MSE)
