Advanced Academic English: A handbook for university writing with glossary

Dina Awad

This handbook is very helpful for university students because it has short phrases that can be copied directly into essays and term papers. There are no grammatical rules, descriptions or instructions. It is a reference book that can be consulted for any subject, major, or discipline because the language is functional and suitable for essays, reports and literature reviews. It is particularly handy for MA and MSc dissertations. The quick ready-made phrases can be projected by ESL and TESOL teachers as slides for writing and revision sessions. Authors and researchers can also benefit from this handbook if they are not certain about certain expressions or formats. This book is a good practical guide to all university students whose first language is not English, but it is also helpful for native speakers whose writing is usually more casual and informal. Unlike many textbooks and websites that try to explain the rules or overwhelm students with linguistic jargon, the glossary part of the book offers formal and academic alternatives to common everyday English. The glossary can be used as an academic editor that checks drafts after being written. It distinguishes clearly between secondary school writing and the style used at university research level. Since academic English is no one's first language, it is time to identify the unspoken traditions of the writing craft known in higher education.
