Professor Ken Hyland discusses interaction in academic writing

  • highlights there is a perception of the growing realization of interaction – stance, in particular
  • uses corpus data from leading journals to explore changes over the past 50 years in the use of stance and engagement
  • somewhat surprisingly, finds a shift to more explicit interpersonal interactions in the sciences and to more detached practices in the soft fields

  • acknowledges there is ample anecdotal evidence of such disadvantage
