  2. 2. Introduction to Academic Writing  Academic writing is the type of writing students are expected to produce in response to content they learn about in an academic setting; i.e. school, college, etc.
  3. 3. Academic Vocabulary Academic vocabulary are the words that are traditionally used in academic writing.
  4. 4. Academic Writing Versus Other Writing Contexts Complexity Formality Precision Accuracy Objectivity Responsibility Explicitness Features of Academic Writing
  5. 5. Features of Academic Writing Complexity: The language is relatively more complex and has longer words with a more varied vocabulary and a grammatical complexity. Formality: Academic writing is relatively formal. It does not include colloquial expression that we consider natural in daily dialogues we have with friend or colleagues. Precision: Academic writing is precise. Factual information, figures or charts, should all be provided and nothing written there should leave room to interpretation.
  6. 6. Features of Academic Writing Accuracy: An accurate use of vocabulary is a must in a text that wants to be academic. Extra attention should be paid when using words with a specific meaning. Objectivity: Written language is in general objective rather than personal. It has fewer words that refer to the writer or the reader. The main emphasis should be on the information that you want to give and the arguments you want to make, rather than the writer getting involved in a personal manner.
  7. 7. Features of Academic Writing Responsibility: Academic writing should be treated with responsibility. Everything stated should be accompanied by proofs and justifications and no assumptions are allowed. Sources should also be mentioned. Explicitness: The author of an academic writing is responsible for make it explicit and for making clear how different parts of the text are connected between them and why are they relevant for the central theme. There are certain words that can be used in order to emphasis this connection and they are called transitional words.
