Questioning the Importance of Individualized Voice in Undergraduate L2 Argumentative Writing: An Empirical Study with Pedagogical Implications.
Helms-Park, Rena; Stapleton, Paul
Journal of Second Language Writing, v12 n3 p245-65 Aug 2003
Contends second language literature yields little empirical evidence of a relationship between the features associated with first language voice and quality of academic writing. Writing samples requiring learners to argue in favor of or against an aspect of Canada's immigration policy were elicited from 63 students in a writing-intensive first-year course. Results suggest there may not be a connection between the linguistic and rhetorical devices commonly associated with individualized voice. (Author/VWL)
