AN INVESTIGATION INTO LINGUISTIC FEATURES OF ENGLISH TEXTS INTRODUCING TRANSPORT SERVICES

Huynh Thi Anh Tram

Abstract


“Text Linguistics”, which is a branch of linguistics, has attracted considerable attention of many linguists in the world. It is true that discovering and applying linguistic features plays an integral role in writing a text. In order to achieve the aim of identifying and examining linguistic features of English Texts Introducing Transport Services (ETITSs), this paper focuses on presenting syntactic features and lexical choices of 100 collected samples of ETITSs. The findings of this paper are hoped to provide language learners with a better insight into linguistic features of texts in general as well as English Texts Introducing Transport Services in particular; therefore, they can apply the linguistic knowledge in their own writings effectively.
