Title: Towards a Functional Approach to the English Research on Writing skills in Sudan
Author: Ezza, Elsadig Yahya
Abstract: This paper is an attempt to evaluate the Sudanese postgraduate research on the writing skills that was conducted in the 1990s. In so doing, it has tried to show whether or not this research has properly addressed the learners' writing problems. Upon examining selected post-graduate research, the paper has concluded that a great deal of what was done related to what has come to be known in the literature as “sentence linguistics, which can hardly be argued to benefit writing. For language, as a system of communication, requires that it be approached as sets of discourses: spoken or written. Sadly enough, these developments have not been convincingly considered by Sudanese EFL course designers and researchers, some of who still rejoice in the structural and transformational-based principles of language teaching and research.
