Editorializing in L2: The Case of Philippine English
Dayag, Danilo T.
Asia Pacific Education Review, v5 n1 p100-109 2004
This paper examines the discourse structure of newspaper editorials in Philippine English in terms of their macrostructure and their lexico-grammatical features. Data were taken from three leading English-language newspapers in the Philippines. Toulmin's framework is used in analyzing the macrostructure of the editorials. The study posits that the discourse features of editorials manifest the interactive nature of these texts. Implications of the findings for second language teaching are also discussed.
