課程概述

Nominalization refers to the process of producing a noun from another linguistic category, i.e., transforming a grammatical expression into a noun. One of the most distinctive linguistic characteristics of modern academic writing is its reliance on nominalized structures. Halliday and Matthiessen (2004) refer to this characteristic of academic writing as a heavy reliance on ‘grammatical metaphor,’ where a proposition is expressed in an incongruent form. Nominalization, as the primary way to create grammatical metaphor, is accordingly used with meanings beyond their normal ‘category meanings.’ Halliday’s works on “grammatical metaphor,” though influential, have mainly been theoretical rather than descriptive, limited in the scope of the grammatical features considered, and are not supported by empirical analysis. 

課程目標
The present course will attempt to address some of the concerns mentioned by undertaking an empirical/quantitative analysis of nominalization as grammatical metaphor in academic writing. To achieve this aim, we will introduce the basic concepts involved in discourse analysis and corpus linguistics, coupled with construction grammar, so as to ascertain the use of nominalization in academic papers. It is hoped that the purpose for adopting such “grammatical metaphor’ may also be made clear during the process of text analysis.
