Professional genres are better understood and analysed in terms of the professional practices that they invariably co-construct in specific contexts; however, in ESP literature genres are often analysed in isolation, thus undervaluing the role and function of interdiscursivity in professional genres. This paper compares two legal genres that are th...

Hedging and boosting are significant communicative resources to construe and attain persuasion in different fields and particular genres of academic writing. They are both two sides of the same coin in the sense that they both contribute to the persuasive import of academic communication. Although boosting is a much less researched phenomenon than...

Project
This is a project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and by the European Social Fund (EU) (FFI2015-68638-R MINECO/FEDER, UE). The aim of the project is to understand genre-mediated activity in academic and research settings and identify the repertoires of genres that scholars use to communicate locally, transnationally and internationally. It is also our aim to understand ecologies of genres in relation to linguistic ecologies. To do so, we draw on the theoretical perspectives of genre analysis, rhetoric and composition, social linguistics and academic literacies (Bazerman & Prior, 2004; Berkenkotter & Huckin, 1995; Gee, 2012; Johns, 1999). We have designed some prototypes of analytical tools to identify the roles that genres and academic languages (English and other languages) in contemporary academia. We want to understand current and changing social interaction practices contextually and determine the parameters that make genres and languages ecologies evolve across academic and research communities of practice.
Project
Analizar el inglés como lengua franca (ILF) en los procesos de alfabetización (Johns 1997) y enculturación (Prior 1998) académicas, procesos en los que se ven inmersos los miembros de las comunidades especializadas. Examinaremos las ‘trayectorias de los textos’ (Lillis y Curry 2006, 2010) como un proceso de aprendizaje de prácticas discursivas, con el objetivo de detectar posibles procesos de transferencia lingüística y retórico-discursiva del español como L1 al inglés como L2, de hibridación interdiscursiva, de adaptación a la retórica anglosajona y de posible aculturación. Además, el análisis de dichas trayectorias nos permitirá explorar las prácticas de los diferentes agentes ―‘mediadores lingüísticos’ (Burrough-Boenish 2004) tales como editores, traductores, revisores, asesores, etc.― que intervienen en el proceso de construcción e intercambio de conocimiento mediante el ILF en géneros escritos.
