Denial and correction as a subcategory of basic clause relations is of crucial importance in a host of research in written textual analysis. Yet investigating potential various patterns construing denial-correction pairing has long been neglected. Following Pagano (2004) and Winter’s (2004) ideas concerning denials, the current study aimed to investigate dc-pairing patterns in a corpus of textbooks in Applied Linguistics taught at MA and PhD levels. The study revealed the existence of 12 patterns that were frequently used in the corpus. It was also found that there was a significant difference between dc-pairing patterns used in the MA and the PhD textbooks in terms of the frequency of the use of the patterns. The study also found other functions for dc-pairing patterns in the corpus.
