Academic Phrasebank

Readers engaged in research and dissertation writing may enjoy Academic Phrasebank. This website serves as a "general resource for academic writers," by providing guidance on style, structure, and substance from introduction to conclusion. Visitors may wish to start by reading the sections devoted to overall writing structure, accessible from the tabs at the top of the site, beginning with Introducing Work. The site also topically breaks down key writing features, such as Defining Terms, Giving Examples, and Writing about the Past. Users will find these sections in the menu on the left-hand side. In addition to defining and describing best practices related to each of these topics, the site also provides various examples. For instance, under the Defining Terms section, users can explore examples of introductory phrases, find common diction used to define "general meanings," and learn how to incorporate terminology common to academic writing into their work. Academic Phrasebank was created by Dr. John Morley, director of the University-wide Language Programmes at the University of Manchester, and draws on the work of English linguist John Swales.
