- Metadiscourse is used to negotiate interactional meanings in a text, assisting the writer to express a viewpoint and engage with readers as members of a particular community. It is classified into interactive and interactional resources. Inadequacy of metadiscourse devices may cause students’ low grades in CET4 compositions. It is feasible to apply metadiscourse to English writing so as to enhance college students’ writing competence.
