Skulstad, Aud Solbjorg
International Journal of Applied Linguistics, v9 n2 p285-98 1999
Discusses how research on conventional discourse patterns in professional settings provides useful insights into the design of language for specific purposes/English for specific purposes courses (LSP/ESP). Suggests an LSP course should aim at developing students' genre awareness. The question of whether genre conventions should be explicitly taught is discussed in relation to the Australian genre debate. (Author/VWL)
