Academic Writing

Academic PhrasebankThis research-based guide from the University of Manchester (Morley, 2014) offers lists of academic expressions organized by the main sections of a research paper in which they often occur (e.g., introductions, literature reviews, etc.), and also by their function (e.g., comparing & contrasting, giving examples, explaining causality, being critical, etc.).  An on-line version of the guide is available here.
