Reviews

This is a very timely and insightful volume that brings to the fore the changing rhetoric of scholarly publication practices through a useful integration of corpus and discourse-analytical perspectives. In taking a diachronic perspective to trace language variation and change in a range of specialised, discipline-specific discourses, Hyland and Jiang's volume provides rich perspectives into the way both monolingual and multilingual writers alike position themselves in their texts. Carmen Perez-Llantada, University of Zaragoza, Spain An excellent read! Through complex perspectives informed by MDA, cohesion and metadiscourse, Hyland and Jiang explain how changes in academic writing in a corpus of journal articles reflect the past 50 years of turmoil in the academy. This collection is recommended reading for novice and experienced researchers and research managers alike. Sheena Gardner, Coventry University, UK
