Language and Grammar Workshop: From Reading to Referencing (1): The Language of Referencing: Reporting Expressions

In this session, we focus on aspects of the language used to launch a quotation, a paraphrase, or summary. We begin by reviewing the differences between these forms of reference to other people's work. Understanding how to use the language of acknowledgement is an important safeguard against inadvertent plagiarism.

In this session, we explore the functions particularly of reporting verbs and other reporting expressions and devices.

We will also take the opportunity to review the requirements of efficient referencing and share the problems which students have encountered with referencing during the course of the year.

This is your chance to ask those SO-CALLED obvious or silly questions about any aspects of referencing which have puzzled you, and may even have landed you in trouble this year.

This course is not currently timetabled. You can add your name to a waiting list if you are interested in attending at a future date.
