    I'm sorry to say I am having trouble reading this article because the word choice is often ungrammatical. The very first sentence makes no sense: "Belonging from the academic commnity..." The article continues in the same vein, with sentences that are very difficult to understand because of their poor word choices. As a longtime writing teacher, I would not accept this paper as finished. .
