Swales ~ still part of the conversation…

From a blog post today in The Chronicle from Lingua Franca, John Swales is cited as having “changed the life” of the author — regarding the dilemma of the “unattended this” in written scholarship

In 2009, when I was teaching an upper-level grammar course that I called “Grammar Boot Camp,” the students and I read an article called “Attended and Unattended ‘This’ in Academic Writing: A Long and Unfinished Story” by John M. Swales. It forever changed me as a writer and editor.
