9780230289338: The Student Phrase Book: Vocabulary for Writing at University (Palgrave Study Skills)

To write successfully at university you need to communicate your ideas clearly and effectively; imprecise or incorrect word use will lessen both the clarity and the credibility of your work. This book gives you an accessible 'way in' to words and phrases used in academic writing. It will help you to express your ideas, arguments and evaluations clearly and precisely, and to produce successful written work.
 
The Student Phrase Book:
· Presents over 1,000 mid- to advanced-level words and phrases common to writing across disciplines
· Presents these words and phrases within the context of common writing functions and sentences so that you can see why and how they are used
· Gives definitions and other important information for many of the words presented, concentrating on the words that most often cause problems
· Explains the differences in meaning and use between commonly confused words
· Shows you what other words surround the key word, so that you can use it with confidence
· Is for anyone who is not totally familiar with writing at university, whatever their discipline or level of study

About the Author:

Jeanne has been teaching and managing in the field of English language and academic writing for over twenty years and currently lectures at the University of Leeds UK.

Jeanne is author of The Student Phrase Book, How to Use Your Reading in Your Essays, Reading and Making Notes and Writing for University.

Review:

'I absolutely agree that there is a need for some more specific guidance re vocabulary for native and near native speakers – a neglected group in HE as far as writing development is concerned. ... Navigability will be key. If it can work intuitively, this book could be a winner.' - Kate Williams, Oxford Brookes University

'The material is up-to-date and I agree that there is a gap in the market for a work of this nature.' - Lucinda Becker, University of Reading

'The author has done a thorough job in researching the market with no obvious omissions as far as I can see. I would certainly recommend a book to my students that encouraged them to develop an interest in the words they use as a vehicle for their ideas.' - Bryan Greetham, author of How to Write Better Essays

'I like the format; I think that a small, 'accessible' little guide will appeal to students (especially) native speakers more than a full-sized book. I could see myself using/recommending such a book. I think the proposal is most interesting.' - Hayo Reinders, Middlesex University
