The larger the size, the bigger the discrepancy. e. whether a particular stance feature is prototypical of a move) (see Appendix L for more description of the statistical model). As there were a substantial number of analyses (23 types of linguistic devices × 21 moves), many of which were not significant (see Pho, 2010), only those statistically significant results are reported in this volume (see Part III). e. how they are used (cf. Drew, 2004; Freddi, 2005; Hempel and Degand, 2008; Hunston, 2007): for example, the functions of we, the tendency of a particular tense to be used for a verb that goes with a certain type of subject, or the source of controlling words (see Part III for more details).
