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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic! 8 Sep 2013
By Togism
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I never thought a book about essays could be so interesting!
The writer has definitely formed a very easy to use book which gives valuable and most importantly interesting information.
I could actually read this book cover to cover and not be bored, Murray uses a lot of linguistic articles, references and information to explain what he is trying to explain. It could be a good book for referencing bits about linguistics and not only about essay writing. Has a fantastic glossary too.
