CULTURAL TRANSFER IN EFL WRITING: A LOOK AT CONTRASTIVE RHETORIC ON ENGLISH AND INDONESIAN

Esther Kuntjara

Abstract


Studies in contrastive rhetoric since Kaplan's (1966) article have indicated the need of looking at L2 writing from different perspective by considering factors such as L2 learners' historical background in L1 writing, the development in their writing process, and the genres before we come to analyze the texts. By following such approaches, this study wants to see if there has been any cultural transfer in L2 writing of Indonesian writers. However, this has led to the probing of Indonesian L1 writing as well. This study again suggests the complexity of rhetoric in writing.

Keywords


contrastive rhetoric; culture.
