This book provides a wealth of help for anyone involved in research writing. The clear, lively text is supported by authentic examples, language ‘Makeovers’, ‘Toolboxes’ with language tips and ‘In brief’ mini-summaries. Each chapter ends with key ‘Takeaways’, and the book with a phrase bank.
Are you involved in writing theses, journal articles, book chapters or monographs? Then this is the book for you. It analyses seven ‘pillars’ of English academic writing: well-planned texts; well-designed paragraphs; well-constructed sentences; reader-friendly punctuation; cohesive devices that make the text ‘hang together’; well-chosen and well-used citations; and the means by which readers are guided through a text and persuaded by it.
Written in an accessible style, English Academic Writing offers
• Over 200 best-practice examples from real research texts
• Hands-on language tips in ‘Toolboxes’
• ‘Makeovers’ showing how texts can be improved
• ‘In brief’ mini-summaries at key junctures in the text
• ‘Takeaways’ for each chapter
• A bank of phrases realising key functions of academic English
