Language and Grammar Workshop: The Language of Referencing; Reporting Expressions; Reporting Verbs; Author- or Content-Focused Attributions

In this workshop, 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 of �reporting verbs� and other reporting expressions and devices.

To book a place on this workshop see the current School of Arts timetable or the MyBirkbeck academic development workshops.
