母语为英语的作者都在用的学术短语库网站

一句英文叙述的表达有很多方式呈现,不过对于专业性非常强的学术论文来说,任何的遣词造句都要遵循一定的规则,有理有据的同时又要读起来足够“高大上”,有些作者也许会有这样的问题“为什么期刊会拒绝我具有足够创新的论文呢”?查尔斯沃思语言润色编辑认为主要有两点原因:

 

1、The paper was so poorly written and so poorly structured that the editor simply couldn’t fathom its meaning.


2、Editors are human beings: impressed by papers that are short, easy to read, and contain a clear message.

 

是的,用清晰的逻辑和结构去撰写你的论文,如何措辞?英文母语作者会如何表达呢?查尔斯沃思编辑推荐中国作者利用Academic Phrasebank网站(www.phrasebank.manchester.ac.uk)提供的丰富学术写作短语及句型来学习撰写学术论文。

 

 

Academic Phrasebank 你可以叫它“学术短语库”,类似于我们直接向大家介绍过的《利用网络语料库减少科技论文语言错误》

,该网站由曼彻斯特大学的John Morley博士创建,旨在为作者提供一些学术研究论文写作上的常用句型或短语资源,帮助作者有效的组织语言及内容,且该语言库的内容大多是中性和通用型的短语、例句,作者可放心使用不涉及窃取别人想法。

该网站的帮助对象是英语为非母语地区的学术科研作者,即便如此,一些母语为英语的科研作者也会利用这个资源。根据该网站对外的数据统计,大部分用户是母语为英语的作者,当然,这一数据可能也说明该资源网站没有得到有效的推广,许多母语非英语作者知道的比较少。


Academic Phrasebank网站由Introducing work、referring to sources、describing methods、discussing findings以及writing conclusions五个部分组成,每个版块都有详细的指导及例句,如在Introducing work菜单下,点击“Establishing the importance of the topic for the discipline”超链接会列出在确定描述研究重要性的例句:

该网站的短语都来源于已发表的母语为英语的学术论文,它们最初由100篇曼彻斯特大学的硕士研究论文构成,不过,随着时间的推移,涉及更广阔学科的论文资源正在被逐渐纳入其中。
