Abstract [en]

The article takes it point of departure from the concepts of practice communities and mediating tools.Following Swales 1990 and Blåsjö 2004, it is argued that an academic discipline constitutes a practicecommunity, developing specified and standardized mediating tools for the purpose of internal communication.Genres and linguistic features discussed at some length are research article introductions,in relation to the cars model (Swales), and different kinds of hedges. The dialogical nature of thesetools is underlined. The student’s learners approach to academic writing is analysed in terms of conflictingpractice communities, the student’s and the research scholar’s. Finally, some attention is paid tothe research scholar writing for a general public audience; the lack of well defined practice communitiesforces the writer to rely on the general discourse on the subject in question – examples are drawnfrom linguistics. The conclusion is the need of a deeper textual awareness among research scholars.
