    A previous study on vocabulary learning strategies (VLS) instruction for Japanese life science
    majors found that they preferred shallower VLS to those involving deeper processing for
    learning general science terminology. It also found that VLS instruction positively affected
    the vocabulary learning behaviors of self-management and input-seeking. These findings
    supported those of earlier researchers on the value of explicit VLS training for humanities
    majors in increasing the use of self-management and input-seeking strategies. The present
    study seeks to clarify how explicit VLS instruction of deeper memory strategies can affect
    the vocabulary learning behaviors of Japanese biology majors when studying ESP vocabulary.
    Pre- and post-instruction surveys were used to measure the change in their vocabulary
    learning behaviors. Statistical analyses including split-plot design ANOVA revealed that the
    VLS instruction was effective regardless of the students’ vocabulary size in self-management,
    input seeking, shallower memory strategies and intrinsic motivation.

    Venue:Online at the Edzil.la JALT2021  

    In this presentation, how and where the first-person pronoun “we” is used in research articles written in English by authors of different linguistic backgrounds will be discussed. A research article corpus was created to analyze the uses of “we” in different sections of research articles. The meta-textual uses of “we” were also examined using the verbs that collocate with “we.” The results show that “we” is widely used throughout science research articles.

    We analyzed the use of metadiscourse markers in research abstracts written by Japanese EFL science majors (EFL corpus: 255 abstracts written by upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in life sciences, 46,717 words) in comparison with two referent corpora: 1,900 abstracts written by Japanese scientists (JS corpus: 353,798 words), and 1,900 abstracts written by scientists in English speaking countries (ES corpus: 340,813). We found learners used metadiscourse markers to describe concrete ideas such as the experiment's purpose and procedure, but their use of metadiscourse markers that connect abstract ideas in the introduction as well as in the conclusion was limited.

    The uses of interactive metadiscourse at the beginning of a sentence in bioscience research article abstracts written in English were compared between NS (English L1) and NNS (Japanese L1) to identify the markers used and the difference between NS and NNS. Data confirmed overall similarity between the two groups with some characteristics among NNS that can be attributed to grammatical factors and writers' familiarity with the markers.
