abstract
The aim of this study is to describe prototypical three-grams to five-grams and their patterns that include the first keyword in the Introduction sections of experimental medical research articles. A move analysis was conducted for 300 experimental medical research articles from 30 journals published in 2014, which consisted of approximately 1.5 million words in total. In the Introduction sections, three moves were defined. To identify the keyword in the three moves, the score of Log-Likelihood Ratio was calculated by comparing each move with the whole corpus data. Moreover, three-grams to five-grams with the first keyword in each move were produced with the use of CasualConc. Finally, they were categorized into the patterns strongly associated with the functions of the steps in each move. In Move 1, five patterns were defined as Step 1, while two patterns were identified as Step 2. In Move 2, six patterns were described as Step 1, while one pattern was regarded as Step 2. In Move 3, three patterns were reported as Step 1, while two patterns were labeled as Step 2 and 3, respectively. In conclusion, these three-grams to five-grams and their patterns could be of help to teach the art of writing academic English.
