Theme-Rheme structure in Chinese doctoral students' research writing -- From the first draft to the published paper AHCI SSCI
期刊论文 | 2019 , 37 , 154-167 | JOURNAL OF ENGLISH FOR ACADEMIC PURPOSES
Abstract&Keyword Cite

Abstract :

This study examines the first draft and the published version of the Discussion sections of 20 medical research articles produced by Chinese doctoral students to track the changes in Theme-Rheme structure made in the process of revision. The results show that the modifications included conjunctive adjuncts and coordinating conjunctions that were used improperly in the first drafts. Half of the projecting clauses starting with the first person pronoun "we" were changed. More than half of the long, fully lexicalized pre-subject ideational components were modified so that the topic-revealing information could be reached more quickly. Most importantly, the majority of information discontinuity, represented by deviated thematic progressions, was adjusted through revision, which greatly increased the readability of the papers. In summary, the modifications in terms of Theme-Rheme structure are prominent and contribute essentially to the readability as well as publishability of the articles. Novice ESL/EFL research writers may lack and need the knowledge of the structure even though they are advanced language learners/users. It is recommended that explicit instructions regarding the structure be incorporated in a graduate-level writing class and teacher training be performed to ensure effective instruction.

Abstract&Keyword Cite

Abstract :

The story continuation writing task (SCWT) is a newly developed type of integrated writing task that is observed to be able to stimulate language learning efficiently. Nevertheless, little is known with respect to what source knowledge test-takers notice and how they process the noticed information during the task. This paper contributes to the literature by investigating what and how source information is attended to and utilized in SCWT. Think-aloud protocols and retrospective interviews were collected from 19 students. In addition, nine teachers were interviewed for their perceptions about source use in SCWT. Findings indicated that the SCWT required knowledge transforming process, as the test-takers attended to both conceptual and textual aspects of the source text. The SCWT represented a unique integrated writing task, because test-takers could rely on the conceptual information for source interpretation and writing development. They could directly employ or imitate the noticed textual information in the continuation. The implications of adopting SCWT as an integrated writing task for assessing students are discussed.

Abstract&Keyword Cite

Abstract :

In this opening commentary we highlight the tension surrounding the emergence and development of bilingual education programs in mainland China, which has attracted much attention in research. Scholars have contradictory views about efforts aimed at promoting and sustaining bilingualism/multilingualism through education in different parts of China. To contribute to this ongoing discussion, this special issue contains the collective efforts of scholars holding different views and examining three types of bilingual education initiatives in mainland China: bilingual education programs for ethnic minority students, the rise of Chinese-English bilingual education, and the vitality of regional Chinese varieties or dialects in major coastal cities. We contend that all the efforts to promote and sustain bilingualism in the aforementioned aspects are to some extent double-edged and require critical examination.

Abstract :

Since the end of 2011, the U.S., the European Union (EU) and China have been searching for a trade remedy regarding each other's photovoltaic (PV) industry. Based on the perspective of the value chain of Global Solar Energy PV industry, this paper examines related factors including the tax rate imposed on the PV industry, and uses the global simulation model (GSIM) to predict the trade impact and welfare effects generated from the "double-anti" policy (anti-dumping laws with countervailing duties). The results of the research showed that China has not yet formed a complete value chain of the PV industry that is internationally competitive. The economic effect of the "double-anti" policy on China as a result of the EU is more pronounced than that with the U.S. The "double-anti" policy will have a negative impact on China's low carbon economy development. The authors conclude that the development of polycrystalline silicon in China needs to be supported by forcible policy measures and targeted measures are proposed.

Harmony in diversity: The language codes in English-Chinese poetry translation AHCI SSCI Scopus

Abstract&Keyword Cite

Abstract :

Translating poetry is a very complex process. The paradoxical nature of untranslatability and translatability of poetry has been noticed by Hai An (The translation of poetry by the translator-cum-poet. Chinese Translator Journals 2005; 6:27-30), citing two famous scholars who are holding totally different opinions toward poetry translation. Robert Frost purports that 'poetry is what gets lost in translation', and Susan Bassnet advocates 'poetry is what we gain in translation'. However, the common ground between these two drastic opinions is that poetry translation is no more a repetition of the original works than a reproduction. There are both similarities and discrepancies between the translated works and the original pieces, or in another word: 'harmony in diversity'. This study aims to testify the above-mentioned proposal in a clear and objective manner, by comparing the original poetry texts (twenty randomly selected poems from Shakespearean sonnets) with their translated versions (the corresponding Chinese-translated versions by four different translators) from the perspective of vocabulary, word frequency distribution and part-of-speech (POS) frequency distribution. The results have corroborated the previous proposal: first, there is no significant difference in terms of vocabulary size and the text management styles between the translated poems and the original ones. Second, there is a significant difference in the word frequency distribution and POS frequency distribution between translated poems and the original ones. Third, there are also differences in the POS frequency distribution in poems translated by different authors. Furthermore, the translation style could distinguish professional translators from professional poets.

How does language change as a lexical network? An investigation based on written Chinese word co-occurrence networks SSCI SCIE PubMed Scopus

Abstract :

Language is a complex adaptive system, but how does it change? For investigating this process, four diachronic Chinese word co-occurrence networks have been built based on texts that were written during the last 2,000 years. By comparing the network indicators that are associated with the hierarchical features in language networks, we learn that the hierarchy of Chinese lexical networks has indeed evolved over time at three different levels. The connections of words at the micro level are continually weakening; the number of words in the meso-level communities has increased significantly; and the network is expanding at the macro level. This means that more and more words tend to be connected to medium-central words and form different communities. Meanwhile, fewer high-central words link these communities into a highly efficient small-world network. Understanding this process may be crucial for understanding the increasing structural complexity of the language system.

A Deep Multi-Modal CNN for Multi-Instance Multi-Label Image Classification EI SCIE Scopus

Abstract&Keyword Cite

Abstract :

Deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have shown superior performance on the task of single-label image classification. However, the applicability of CNNs to multi-label images still remains an open problem, mainly because of two reasons. First, each image is usually treated as an inseparable entity and represented as one instance, which mixes the visual information corresponding to different labels. Second, the correlations amongst labels are often overlooked. To address these limitations, we propose a deep multi-modal CNN for multi-instance multi-label image classification, called MMCNN-MIML. By combining CNNs with multi-instance multi-label (MIML) learning, our model represents each image as a bag of instances for image classification and inherits the merits of both CNNs and MIML. In particular, MMCNN-MIML has three main appealing properties: 1) it can automatically generate instance representations for MIML by exploiting the architecture of CNNs; 2) it takes advantage of the label correlations by grouping labels in its later layers; and 3) it incorporates the textual context of label groups to generate multi-modal instances, which are effective in discriminating visually similar objects belonging to different groups. Empirical studies on several benchmark multi-label image data sets show that MMCNN-MIML significantly outperforms the state-of-the-art baselines on multi-label image classification tasks.

Abstract :

This paper proposes an effective method to extract printed and handwritten characters from multilingual document images to build corpus. To extract the characters from the document images, a connected component analysis method is used to remove the graphics. After that, multiple types of features and AdaBoost algorithm are introduced to classify printed and handwritten characters in a more versatile and robust way. Firstly, the content of the image is divided into several text patches which are then used to distinguish different languages. Secondly, we use the multiple types of features and AdaBoost algorithm to train the classifiers based on the segmented patches. Finally, we can separate printed and handwritten parts of new image set by the trained classifiers. The proposed method improves the precision of the extraction of written materials in text images of different languages. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method is more accurate in terms of precision and recall rate compared with the state-of the-art methods.

Abstract :

This study explores the challenges faced by young lecturers in managerial transformation in elite Chinese academic institutions which aim to develop into world-class universities. Drawing on data from in-depth interviews, the paper discusses how a group of lecturers on tenure-track contracts at a research university in China perceived the impacts of this managerial personnel reform. The study revealed intensified academic pressure and consequent feelings of insecurity, uncertainty and anxiety among the participants. Rigid tenure requirements pushed down research quality, and detracted from the efforts the participants could have devoted to teaching. Further negative impacts were strengthened power hierarchies and increasingly gendered nature of the academic culture.

Abstract :

The present study explored the development of second language (L2) Chinese learners' ability to negotiate requests in interactions. It investigated the effect of proficiency on learners' use of request strategies and internal modifications and on their sequential realization of requests in L2 Chinese. Twenty-four American English learners of L2 Mandarin Chinese at three different proficiency levels completed a three-scenario role-play task. The scenarios were kept low in imposition and social distance but variable in power relations. Each participant interacted with a native speaker interlocutor who assumed different roles in those scenarios. Baseline data were provided by 10 native speakers (NSs) of Chinese. A total of 102 role-plays were coded for request strategies, internal modifications, and supportive moves, as well as the sequential placement of supportive moves in pre-, insert, and postexpansions. Situational variations as reflected in role-play production were considered alongside. The results showed that learners across proficiencies had the same range of pragmatic strategies as in NSs' repertoire, but they showed a general incompetence in employing internal modifications. Learners' ability to delay the requests improved with increasing proficiency, but learner production in general did not show the same level of situational variations as observed in the NS data.
