The paper sets out to compare writing practices from two academic disciplines - history and economics - in order to find out the most frequent lexical and phraseological tools employed by the respective discourse communities in order to claim significance. Corpus data show that historians and economists make a different use of linguistic resources at their disposal in order to stress the centrality of their research with regard to the wider disciplinary debate.

Abstract

The paper sets out to compare writing practices from two academic disciplines - history and economics - in order to find out the most frequent lexical and phraseological tools employed by the respective discourse communities in order to claim significance. Corpus data show that historians and economists make a different use of linguistic resources at their disposal in order to stress the centrality of their research with regard to the wider disciplinary debate.
