Death Metal English

Is there a Death Metal English? According to this article, yes. 

Let’s see: use of passive voice, poly-syllabic words, prepositional phrases, gerunds in titles…sounds like some of the characteristics of academic writing.

I’m glad that in teaching EAP, we’re really preparing our students for a broad range of future possibilities. 🙂
