Sammanfattning

Academic discourse is dialogic, and the way in which a researcher engages with other voices in the discourse is an integral part of the social practice of communicating research. In this work-in-progress paper, I will discuss how this dialogism is realized in medical research discourse, by applying the systemic-functional framework of appraisal to a multimodal corpus of medical research articles. Specifically, I will present how the corpus has been compiled and annotated according to the system networks of engagement and graduation. I will also present preliminary findings of the discourse-semantic features identified, the probabilities of their being selected, and their distributions across the texts. Some of the challenges involved in annotating nonverbal and multimodal elements, e.g., figures and tables, as well as general challenges related to corpus-based application of the appraisal framework will also be discussed.
