Abstract: This study which explores successful and less-successful learners’ comparative essays written by university students learning Turkish, which is based on two corpora of student writing: 20 successful essays and 20 less-successful essays in Turkish. Using Hyland’s (2005) model of interactional metadiscourse, these papers were compared to examine the extent to which successful and less successful student-produced comparative essays differ in their employment of interactive and interactional modes. Findings of the analysis suggest that successful essays contain significantly greater instances of particularly interactive devices than less successful essays.
