|Description||With the growing internationalisation of all scholarship the use of English as an international lingua franca has become an important prerequisite for scholars who intend to submit their abstracts and present their research to an academic audience at international conferences. Consequently, schola ars from non-Anglophone backgrounds have to master the writing of this research-process genre (Swales, 1990) in English, since otherwise they may risk being refused participation at conferences and publication in conference prob ceedings. This chapter analyses the textual organisation of conference abstracts (CAs) written in English with the aim of finding out whether there is intercul( tural variation in rhetorical moves and their linguistic realisations applied by Anglophone scholars and those from some countries where Slavonic languages are spoken.|
