Abstract

This article aims to emphasize the importance of intercultural text linguistic comparisons for the production of academic texts. Therefore, a case study has been presented for an intercultural comparison of academic texts. In relation with this aim, a text linguistic model has been submitted for text analysis. An important result of this study is that intercultural comparisons do not only show the cultural differences between languages, but also contribute to the reception and production of academic texts in the native and in foreign language.
