Academic language

Use simple straight forward language

  • Integrate specialist and discipline vocabulary without being pompous.
  • If your discipline prefers very formal abstract writing, nominalisation (using noun form of verbs) can be used to express actions as concepts.
  • Avoid wordiness, redundancy, tautology and round-about phrasing.
  • Avoid emotive or discriminatory (non-inclusive) language.
