A Corpus-based Study of Applied Linguistics Research Articles: A Multidimensional AnalysisKanyarat Getkham, Ph.DGraduate School of Language and CommunicationNIDA Abstract This paper employed a multidimensional analysis (Biber, 1995; Biber et al. 2004) to investigate co-occurring patterns of linguistic features and compared how they were used across research sections. The corpus came from 60 research articles (RAs) published in five leading Applied Linguistics journals based on the ranking of journals in Journal Citation Reports: Science Edition (2007). Twelve articles were selected to represent each journal covering the one-year period of 2006. Data were collected from the introduction, methodology, results, and discussion parts of research articles. In the multidimensional analysis, 38 linguistic features were tagged, counted and normalized. Then, the normalized frequencies of these features were entered in a factor analysis to find the co-occurring patterns. Findings indicated that there were six co-occurring patterns which were named as follows: (1) Established Knowledge/Expression of Ownership, (2) Expression of Purposes, (3) Evaluative Stance, (4) Expression of Generality, (5) Framing Claims, and (6) Conceptual Complexity. Findings also indicated multidimensional differences across research sections. Such knowledge may help non-native English research writers better understand the use of linguistic features in Applied Linguistics
