The study explores how post-modification of stance nouns in the [NOUN that] clauses is used across disciplines. It also compares local academic publications with globally published ones. Special attention is paid to the frequencies, forms and functions of post-modification structure based on two corpora: the BNC (British National Corpus) and the corpus of Taiwanese local journal articles (TLJ). Both corpora comprise two distinct sections: social sciences and natural sciences. Two research questions are explored:
1. What are the stance options of head nouns do academic writers prefer to use in social and natural sciences?
2. How do academic writers of social and natural sciences use the post-modification of stance nouns to convey authorial voice and construct knowledge?
