The Academic Phrasebank is a general resource for academic writers. Other phrases are listed under the more general communicative functions of academic writing see the menu on the left. The resource should be particularly useful for writers who need to report their research work. The phrases, and the headings under which they are listed, can be used simply to assist you in thinking about the content and organisation of your own writing, or the phrases can be incorporated into your writing where this is appropriate. In most cases, a certain amount of creativity and adaptation will be necessary when a phrase is used. For some of the entries, specific content words have been included for illustrative purposes, and these should be substituted when the phrases are used.
