Türkiye Bağlamında Akademik Yazım üzerine Derlem-Temelli Çalışmaların Sistematik Değerlendirmesi
A Systematic Review of Corpus-Based Studies on Academic Writing in the Turkish Context

Fatma YUVAYAPAN [1] , Ceyhun YÜKSELİR [2]


Bu çalışmada akademik yazım, yazarların akademik alanlarında inanılırlık kazanmayı amaçladıkları, yazarlar ve okuyucular arasındaki akademik uzlaşmaya dayanmaktadır. Bunu yaparken, okuyucularla iletişim kurmada ve okuyuculara iddialarının gerçekliklerini ikna etmede kültürel ve disiplinler arası normlara dayanan bir dizi dilbilimsel araçlardan faydalanmaktadırlar. Bu çalışmada, İngiliz Dili Eğitimi ve İngiliz Dilbilimi alanlarındaki Türk araştırmacılar tarafından yürütülen akademik yazım ile ilgili kültürlerarası derlem çalışmalarının incelemesi yapılmaktadır ve bu dilbilimsel araçların bu alanlardaki Türk akademisyenler tarafından nasıl algılandıklarının ortaya çıkarılması amaçlanmaktadır. Bunlar son on yıl içinde yapılan doktora ve yüksek lisans tezleri ve araştırma makaleleridir. Sonuçlara dayalı olarak, Türk akademik yazarların kendi anadillerinde farklı bir yazım şekli olduğu ve çoğunlukla İngilizce olarak akademik türde yazdıklarında hem küresel hem de kültürel grupların dilbilimsel kurallarını takip etme girişimleri olduğu bulunmuştur.

Academic writing is rested on a view of academic negotiation between writers and readers in which writers ultimately aim to gain credibility in their academic discipline. In doing so, they utilize a wide range of linguistic devices based on cultural and disciplinary norms to communicate with readers and convince the readers about the truth of their claims. Based on a review of corpus-based studies about linguistic devices in academic writing conducted by Turkish scholars in the field of English Language Teaching and Linguistics, the present systematic review aims to show a general understanding of these devices in the lens of Turkish scholars in these fields. The systematic review has been carried out by postgraduate dissertations, MA theses and research articles in the past decade. Based on the results, it is found that Turkish academic writers had a different style of taking stance in their L1 and they mostly attempt to follow the linguistic conventions of both global and cultural communities in their discipline while writing academic genres in English.
