We engage with spoken and written academic discourse – and its many manifestations across the disciplines – everyday. We expect our students to do the same and try to teach them how. The aim of my research is to identify and unpick structures and patterns in authentic data that enable this how, and to find effective ways of communicating them to staff and students.
