Abstract

In both Hyland (2006) and Leki, Cumming, and Silva (2008) the term voice is absent from the index. It is left to practitioners to operationalise the construct and arrive at a collective understanding. Iga Maria Lehman’s book, the twelfth in the Peter Lang series Studies in Language, Culture and Society, seemingly fills this gap. It is aimed at applied linguists and English language teachers working at the tertiary level, and it tests the hypothesis that a writer’s voice and academic writer identity are constructs of writing competence and the writer’s self.
