5.0 von 5 Sternen A book with very valuable advice 7. März 2014
Von Ulf Norberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book sets as its aim to help the reader writing English of a very high standard. It is especially developed for academic writing, and, according to the back cover, “specially designed for non-native speakers”. It focuses mainly on the formal side of academic writing, and is intended to be used in a wide range of fields and by both students and researchers. The book contains four main parts: firstly, Writing Help, a section of around 120 pages with information on issues that you might be uncertain about when writing, like spelling and punctuation rules, and confusing issues in grammar and vocabulary. The second part, Phrases (110 pages), gives you a wealth of suitable phrases to use in academic papers in English. The phrases are divided into sections that follow the structure of academic papers, therefore labelled, e.g., “The aim of your study and outlining the topic”, “What you disagree with”, and “Hypotheses and probability”. Thirdly, there is a Thesaurus (25 pages) of typically academic words and expressions, and a Glossary containing university and research terminology, as well as Greek and Latin elements used in academic discourse (altogether 40 pages).
This is certainly a book that can be seen as a resource that you can return to in many different situations. It is written in a concise and lucid way, with no long-winded discussions, and the advice is resolute and clear. The Writing Help part helps you avoid formal mistakes, and there is also very valuable advice on stylistic issues, e.g. how to avoid gender bias, and how to avoid colloquial language, not least the word “get” with its different particles.
The main idea of the Phrases section is to give you opportunities to vary your language, and this is perhaps the most useful section, especially for non-native writers. There are many researchers today that use English everyday as their working language, without having it as their first language, and also without having studied it at university level. Consequently, many might experience a perpetual insecurity concerning, e.g., grammar rules, and stylistic matters. The Phrases section with several thousands of words and phrases might be very helpful since it only catalogues items suitable for academic writing; thereby the non-native researcher does not risk using, e.g., language that is too colloquial.
Central for a book of this kind is of course that it is easy to navigate; i.e., that you quickly find what you are looking for. In the PhraseBook, the layout is sober and open, and there is also plenty of space for your own additions. The table of contents is clearly presented, but since it is absolutely crucial for the use of the book, I think it could be typographically even more exposed than now by using different colours or other means, since you return to it perpetually. Tables of contents could actually also start each chapter, and contain even the smallest subsections, which are not covered in the general table of contents now. There possibly cannot be too many indexes in a book like this.
Concerning non-native researchers, not even the hardest study of this book will make it possible to dispense with language correction by a native speaker completely, but the thorough use of it might lower the costs for correction substantially. And getting better self-confidence yourself when writing in English, as well as letting native language correctors concentrate on the really complicated matters, cannot be a bad thing.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A superb, must-have reference for the aspiring academic writer 10. Februar 2014
Von i s gale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have been teaching academic writing to undergraduate and postgraduate students at Japanese universities for more than ten years, but this is the first time I've been sufficiently impressed by a text to write a review on Amazon. In short, my admiration for Howe & Henriksson's Phrasebook for Writing Papers and Research in English stems from the hugely beneficial effect it's had upon the quality of my students' essays. Prior to the academic year just ended, I was in the habit of prescribing a standard grammar text to accompany my course in academic writing. This type of text undoubtedly made a contribution, but all too many of my students were only referring to it retroactively (i.e. after I had alerted them to a specific flaw in their writing). The great advantage of Howe & Henriksson's text is that it enables students to quickly locate more precise and more academically appropriate alternatives to the phrases they would otherwise have used while they are still in the process of drafting. The effect has been enormous and reflects the exhaustive nature of the phrases and advice compiled by Howe & Henriksson and, just as importantly, the logical way in which these elements have been organized. It is that rarest of things―a practical, user-friendly and thorough reference as applicable to the non-native undergraduate as it is to the faculty-level researcher. I thoroughly recommend this superb text to anyone interested in improving their students' or their own ability to write academic papers in English.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Indispensable book for non-native English speakers 21. November 2013
Von Vasily Moshnyaga - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
There are various books dedicated for writing papers and scientific reports for non-native English speakers. To put thoughts on paper usually is not a trivial task for many students and practitioners even in their mother tongue. This task grows enormously if paper has to be written in English by a non-native English speaker. Therefore any assistance, which can improve writing skills and style and reduce hardship of communicating in English with power and a few words, becomes indispensable. The "PhraseBook for Writing Papers and Research in English" serves this purpose splendidly. It is one of a few books, which really helps me, a non-native English speaker, in my work. Unlike many related books and guides, the Phrasebook allows the users to work on own writing; improve the text structure; expand the text with phrases and words most frequently used in academic English. It also encourages the users to improve their vocabulary by suggesting alternative expressions, helping them to familiarize themselves with scientific terminology, give their writing greater richness and variety.
I enjoy working with this book and believe if you apply the recommendations, it will produce better a written more polished text. Highly recommended.
