AUTHORIAL IDENTITY IN RESEARCH ARTICLES
The present study investigates the employment of self-mentions and their functions in English articles in the field of architecture. To this end, a compiled corpus, composing of the post-method sections of 50 articles, was analyzed both quantitatively and qualitatively. The results shed light on various functions used by English-language writers to express their authorial identity through explicit employment of self-mentions. The findings provide some insights into the rhetorical conventions of the academic discourse community of architects and into employment of these discursive features which are of great importance to EAP teachers and learners.
