Abstract

As an academic engaging with the tortuous process of bidding for funding, in scanning the contents page of this volume, my eye was immediately drawn to a study on rhetorical patterns in research grant proposals (Koutsantoni) and I have made a mental note to revisit this chapter at a later date. Moreover, as a researcher of undergraduate writing, a postgraduate writer, and a teacher of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) this book ticks all boxes for me. I imagine that every reader of this journal will have some interest in academic writing, even if only as a reader and writer of research articles. This comprehensive volume covers a range of disciplines (e.g. Biology, Economics, History), examines highly specific genres (e.g. the PhD literature review, undergraduate discursive essays) and expands our knowledge of specific features of writing (e.g. restrictive adverbs, engagement features, conjunctive ties).
