Farrell, Thomas S. C. – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2015

In this article I suggest that it is not in anybody's interests to continue with…

Waters, Alan – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2015
The diversity of opinion about pedagogy within ELT (English Language Teaching) makes it essential that its professional discourse is sufficiently inclusive. However, this often fails to occur because ELT professional discussion is frequently too "Orwellian" in nature, i.e. behaves in a manner resembling the political structures in the…

Yin, Zihan – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2015
Many studies have found EFL/ESL learners over/under/misuse linking adverbials. Because their use is specific to genre and register (Biber et al., 1999), and news writing is a compulsory course for EFL journalism majors at many Chinese universities, this study investigates their usage patterns in news and suggests teaching material design for the…
