摘要
The present study aims to investigate the differences in the rhetorical organization of research article (hereafter RA) introductions written by Korean scholars and native English speakers based on Swales' CARS model (1990). One hundred sixteen RA introductions were compared.
The surface move structure of Korean national scholars' introductions and interviews with Korean researchers imply that the Korean-National scholars use western style writing as a model. However, Korean-national scholars write RA introductions with fewer references than do U.S.-educated Korean scholars or native English speakers. Among the Korean-Nationals scholars' RA introductions there are several instances of introductions beginning with information that is of a somewhat general nature, which could not be categorized on the basis of the CARS model.
Out of the 25 Korean-English pairs of RAs written by the same author, 9 scholars use the same or similar rhetorical structures when they write introductions either in Korean or in English. It is interesting to observe that five out of the 25 Korean-English paired introductions written by the same author use different ways of realizing Move 2s in their introductions. They realize Move 2 based on previous studies when they write in English. When they write in Korean, Move 2 is realized based on educational situations (e.g. criticism of current educational policy) even though they can find relevant previous studies which they can refer to in their introductions.
The function of the RA introductions seems to be the same in a general sense. However, it seems that the role of previous studies in the introduction might be different. The Korean national scholars' literature review is more like a general brief history of previous studies addressed to a general audience than a critical review of previous research.
It seems that Swales' model is too much based too strongly on niche establishment, including gaps in previous studies, and ignores other possible ways of writing RA introductions. The CARS model is a good writing models and a good tool for the analysis of RAs; however, we might need other models or revisions of the model to describe and analyze RAs written in languages other than English.
