With a focus on written student reports, this paper considers how linguistic descriptions of texts can be applied in TEAP. It outlines a series of related studies, and suggests ways in which each could inform TEAP practice. The studies fall under two funded projects that relate to the BAWE corpus of successful student writing (Nesi & Gardner, 2012) and are presented here in the order in which they were conducted, including work on macrostructures, genre families, registers and teaching materials. The actual uptake from such studies is often unpredictable, and the aim is not to dictate a prescribed methodology, but rather to reconsider in the context of specific studies how linguistics can be applied in teaching EAP
