      Academic discourse is a rapidly growing area of study, attracting researchers and students from a diverse range of fields. This is partly due to the growing awareness that knowledge is socially constructed through language and partly because of the emerging dominance of English as the language of scholarship worldwide. Large numbers of students and researchers must now gain .   Academic discourse refers to the particular ways of thinking about and discussing information related to a specific area of academic study. Those involved in the discourse of a particular area of study are known as a "discourse community."The academic discourse of a field of study comprises both informal and formal forms of communication.

As mentioned by Danielle Lynch, Academic Discourse and PBL, May 6, , "Academic discourse is not something that comes easily to most students;rather, it needs to be taught, modeled and recognized by both teacher and student.".

    Academic discourse socialization is a dynamic and complex process. Learners internalize the practice of the academic fields through the participation with more competent members of social groups. As novices in the academic principle, less proficient learners acquire the knowledge of academic discourse from the interaction with experts in the field. The culture of academic discourse is particularly protected by its own patriarchal, institutional and class power structures. When alternative cultures attempt to connect with this structure the disjunction between new and established cultures may result in new learning.
