Subject Language: English
Abstract: Contrastive rhetoric is an interesting area of applied linguistics that is concerned with how non-native writers of English employ linguistic, non-linguistic and extra-linguistic means to communicate meaning. However, there are several methodological and conceptual issues, usually ignored, that need to be considered before contrastive rhetoric could yield meaningful results. After outlining the relationship of genre, rhetoric, and culture, this paper discusses these issues with reference to various studies in contrastive rhetoric.
