English language and linguistics shares many of its writing
conventions with those of other disciplines, but there are certain
features and expectations that distinguish it as a subject. This
book is written specifically to help undergraduate students of
English language and linguistics develop the art of writing essays,
projects and reports. Written by an author with over 30 years'
experience of lecturing in the subject, it is a comprehensive and
very readable resource and contains numerous discipline-related
examples, practice exercises and an answer key. It includes
chapters on referencing (including plagiarism, paraphrase and
guidance on referencing styles), stylistic issues that often get
overlooked, and writing a dissertation. The book offers practical
guidance and a layout that guides students as they work though
their project. It will be an invaluable reference tool that
students can read cover to cover or dip into as and when required.
