In the light of these findings, we suggest an Associative Interpersonal Model of Author s 's Exclusivity AIMAE which is promising in exploring author s 's affinity with certain cognitive patterns of metadiscursive interaction.
In line with academic writing research and recent pedagogical perspectives towards it, a range of strategies has been underlined to explain how academic prose is constructed. However, the notion of establishing a successful communication through references to the presence of the authors henceforth authorial reference is, to some extent, complex and problematic for most postgraduate writers due to the fact that there is disparity between what the postgraduates are expected to and what they achieve by their writing style to accommodate to the discourse community practices Paltridge and Starfield, In addition, there are controversial viewpoints over the extent of how writers aptly intrude themselves into their discourses and establish their authorial presence.
An exploratory study on authorial in visibilty across postgraduate academic writing: Apr The writers of any scientific community are inherently expected to fulfil some agreed-upon discourse conventions of the academic discourse community Molino, in the sense of creating a successful dialogic interaction through their texts.
Considering the fact that academic writing is closely linked to the representation of authorial self Hyland, and the voice of the postgraduates has received relatively less attention, in this paper, we explored the notion of explicit via I and we-based instances and implicit via passive and impersonal instances representation of postgraduates as the novice writers in the Social Sciences; namely, Turkish native speakers, Turkish speakers of English and English native speakers.
Therefore, the focus of the paper shall be on the variations of personal first person pronouns or impersonal agentless passives and inanimate subjects uses of authorial references as well as their discourse functions in the postgraduate writing. In total, 90 successfully-completed dissertations of three postgraduate groups were randomly selected to compile the corpus of the study, and a corpus-informed discourse analysis approach was applied in the identification of choices of authorial representation in this genre.
Following an extensive manual analysis of the texts from the corpus for each group, a list of explicit and implicit authorial references was extracted from sample texts to be explored in the analysis of the whole corpus. The quantitative analysis clearly showed that Turkish L1 and Turkish writers of English preferred to build mainly an impersonal impression over what they were presenting to the reader by employing a greater number of implicit authorial references whereas English L1 writers chose to create a more self-prominent academic prose.
The qualitative analysis provided some evidence to argue that three groups employed explicit or implicit authorial references to accomplish particular discourse acts i.
