Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Discourse Analysis; Text/Corpus Linguistics
Abstract: Academic writers have reported that research article introductions are more problematic to write than the rest of the paper. It is because they have to choose from amongst the various options available to them for making a start. The CARS Model beautifully captures these options in functional terms which make it very easy to understand and implement. In this paper, I discuss the model with examples from published geology research articles to show the model’s usefulness. However, the model is equally applicable to other disciplines.
