Teaching academic writing through disciplinary corpora: a review of Learning the Language of Dentistry by Peter Crosthwaite and Lisa Cheung

Learning the Language of Dentistry by Peter Crosthwaite and Lisa Cheung is the first systematic contribution to corpus-based analysis of the language of dentistry for the purposes of disciplinary writing.
