"The Mystery . . .": A Corpus-based Study of the Use of Nouns To Construct Stance in Theses from Two Contrasting Disciplines.
Charles, Maggie
Journal of English for Academic Purposes, v2 n4 p313-26 2003
Investigates the construction of stance through nouns in two corpora of theses--200,000 words in politics and international relations and 300,000 words in materials science. Examines nouns that are preceded by sentence initial deicitic "This" and that serve to encapsulate earlier prepositions. (Author/VWL)
