Hyland, Fiona; Hyland, Ken
Journal of Second Language Writing, v10 n3 p185-212 Aug 2001
Offers a detailed text analysis of written feedback given by two teachers of English-as-a-Second-Language students. Considers this feedback in terms of it functions as praise, criticism, and suggestions. Explores the motivations for these through teacher interviews and think-aloud protocols and examines cases where students failed to understand their teachers' comments due to their indirectness.
