Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

This book is based on a study of referees' reports and letters from journal editors on reasons why papers written by non-native researchers are rejected due to problems with English grammar. It draws on English-related errors from around 5000 papers written by non-native authors, several hundred emails, 500 abstracts by PhD students, and over 1000 hours of teaching researchers how to write and present research papers.

The exercises include the following areas:

  • active vs passive, use of we
  • articles (a/an, the, zero) and quantifiers (some, any, few etc)
  • conditionals and modals
  • countable and uncountable nouns
  • genitive
  • infinitive vs -ing form
  • numbers, acronyms, abbreviations
  • relative clauses and which vs that
  • tenses (e.g. simple present, simple past, present perfect)
  • word order

Exercise types are repeated for different contexts. For example, the difference between the simple present, present perfect and simple past is tested for use in papers, referees' reports, and emails of various types. Such repetition of similar types of exercises is perfect for revision purposes.

English for Academic Research: Grammar Exercises is designed for self-study and there is a key to all exercises. Most exercises require no actual writing but simply choosing between various options, thus facilitating e-reading and rapid progress.

The exercises can also be integrated into English for Academic Purposes (EAP) and English for Special Purposes (ESP) courses at universities and research institutes.

The book can be used in conjunction with the other exercise books in the series and is cross-referenced to:

English for Research: Usage, Style, and Grammar

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I bought both books in paperback because I strongly suspected that the tables would be useless in Kindle format 11 septembre 2014
Par Alessandra - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book accompanies English for Research: Usage, Style, and Grammar. Exercises are organized according to the sections in the former book and complement it. I bought both books in paperback because I strongly suspected that the tables would be useless in Kindle format. I greatly recommend it (the book in paperback). However, it must be emphasized that academic English has as many exceptions as it has rules, and if you are not immersed in an English speaking country, chances are that you will have to make an extra effort to memorize the exceptions.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book for college students especially ESL students 26 janvier 2013
Par Kimberly Ann Fujioka - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is an excellent book for college or university students especially ESL students. Even graduate students could be helped by this. I taught for over 20 years at the university level; and I wish my students had learned how to do academic research properly. Especially international students who are from countries where copying and pasting is accepted in an academic paper, this book is an excellent resource. This book helps students see the difference between paraphrasing and copying. They also learn the proper grammar for academic research.
