Abstract:

English language and linguistics shares many of its writing conventions withthose of other disciplines, but there are certain features and expectationsthat distinguish it as a subject. This book is written specifically to helpundergraduate students of English language and linguistics develop the art ofwriting essays, projects and reports. Written by an author with over 30 years'experience of lecturing in the subject, it is a comprehensive and veryreadable resource and contains numerous discipline-related examples, practiceexercises and an answer key. It includes chapters on referencing (includingplagiarism, paraphrase and guidance on referencing styles), stylistic issuesthat often get overlooked, and writing a dissertation. The book offerspractical guidance and a layout that guides students as they work though theirproject. It will be an invaluable reference tool that students can read coverto cover or dip into as and when required.
