Getting started on an assignment?

Are you doing an assignment, essay or thesis this semester? Do you ever find yourself stuck for a word, or perhaps you can't find the appropriate phrase to say what you mean... If so, the Academic Phrasebank might be useful for you...

The Academic Phrasebank is a general resource for academic writers, created by the University of Manchester.

According to the site's own description,  ''It aims to provide you with examples of some of the phraseological "nuts and bolts" of writing. 

The phrases can be used simply to assist you in thinking about your writing, or they can be used in your own work where this is appropriate. In most cases, a certain amount of creativity will be necessary when you do this. It is also possible to transfer some of the words used in particular phrases to others. The phrases are content neutral and generic in nature; in using them, therefore, you are not stealing other people's ideas and this does not constitute plagiarism.

Users will need to be aware that Phrasebank is not discipline specific, and it does not claim to be comprehensive''
