dc.description.abstractTaking a cross-cultural perspective, this paper considers the functions of author-reference pronouns in contemporary English-medium academic discourse. While considering the range of authorial roles in academic discourse, the study explores how academic writers exploit various rhetorical functions of author-reference pronouns for communicating with their readers and enhancing the persuasiveness of their discourse. The cross-cultural investigation is carried out on a corpus of research articles in applied linguistics written by Anglophone and Czech linguists. The analysis considers the frequency of use and the most prominent rhetorical functions of personal pronouns in relation to the generic structure of research articles. The differences in the rate and functions of author-reference pronouns in research articles written by Anglophone and Czech linguists is discussed taking into consideration the intended readership and the divergences between the Anglophone and the Czech academic writing literacies.en_US
