Data extracts are numbered consec- utively only within a single chapter of the four data-analysis chapters (4-7), but not across these chapters. Gender of generic pronouns: As mentioned in Chapter 3 (3.6.3), pseudonyms (Chinese pinyin ini- tials) for Chinese and foreign teachers start with respectively letters “C” and “F”. In any reference to an individual teacher in data extracts and related discussion, “he/she”, “his/her” and “him/her” are used be- cause the number of faculty members was relatively small and they might be identifiable in some way by gender.
