Abstract:This poster examines the relationship between researchers’ Linguistic Closeness of the native language to English (LCoE) and their writing styles. The “LCoE of articles” were defined according to the LCoE of their first and corresponding authors which are output by Ethnea, a system with an input of authors’ full name and an output of their possible native languages. The mean and standard deviation of the sentence length as well as average proportion of different parts of speech are utilized as two major indicators. Preliminary results showed three features of academic writing on researchers with higher LCoE: (1) longer sentences; (2) the combination between long and short sentences; and (3) more proportion of verbs.
