Abstract

The present study investigates the rhetorical structure of theoretical research article introductions written by undergraduate students in the field of English linguistics and literature. The aim of the study was to see if English-language introductions written by Hungarian students majoring in English conformed to those typically written by native speakers, and to examine if two disciplines, English literature and linguistics observe different conventions in terms of rhetorical structure in introductions. The findings suggest that although on the whole the Hungarian introductions displayed the elements typically identified in research articles written by native expert writers, discipline-specific variations emerged.
