Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition
Abstract: This study surveys the field of comparative and contrastive rhetoric in accordance with the contemporary linguistic tradition. In particular, it presents a critique and an original classification of major trends and findings in contrastive rhetoric in cross cultural and cross linguistic settings, during last quarter of a century. Major reports and research findings in the field of contrasting compositions in mono/multi linguistic/cultural frameworks are surveyed and indexed according to research orientation. Two major tendencies; teaching a second and/or foreign language, and cross culturo-linguistic communication, were particularly pursued. Examinations, which focus in cross culturo-linguistic communication, constitute the cardinal objectives of this study. /L//L/The study concludes to answer; when and to what degree rhetorical protocols of native language-culture influence second-language writing. And consequently, why more research in the field of cross-cultural and cross-linguistic contrasts is certainly binding.
