ItemAuthorial Stances in Classroom Speeches: A Corpus-Based Study( 2016) Sarit SiribudCorpus-based studies have become increasingly popular among researchers in the field of linguistics and language studies, as they may shed light on language instruction and course designs (Conrad, 1999). Given this emphasis, a corpus-based analysis on stances (Hyland, 2005) in students’ classroom speeches has been employed. The analysis of a corpus of 104 undergraduate students’ speech transcriptions reveals that students employed authorial stances in their speeches. Such results, however, only suggest that these stances were used subconsciously by the students, given that they have never been introduced to such a concept. It is then suggested that the concepts of authorial stances be introduced to Thai students so they may employ these linguistics items on a more strategic level and become more competent speakers and writers of English.
