The Bilingual Advantage draws together researchers from education, economics, sociology, anthropology and linguistics to examine the economic and employment benefits of bilingualism in the US labor market, countering past research that shows no such benefits exist. Collectively, the authors draw on novel methodological approaches and new data to examine the economics of bilingualism for the new generation of bilinguals entering a digital-age globalized workforce. The authors also pay considerable attention to how to best capture measures of bilingualism and biliteracy, given the constraints of most existing datasets.

  • 1. Introduction (by Verdaguer, Isabel), pix-xiv-- 2. Collocations, lexical bundles and SciE-Lex: A review of corpus research on multiword units of meaning (by Laso, Natalia Judith), p1-20-- 3. SciE-Lex: A lexical database (by Verdaguer, Isabel), p21-38-- 4. Formal and functional variation of lexical bundles in biomedical English (by Salazar, Danica), p39-54-- 5.

A cross-disciplinary analysis of personal and impersonal features in English and Spanish scientific writing (by Salazar, Danica), p121-144-- 9. Gender assignment in present-day scientific English: A case study in the field of Zoology journals (by Guzman-Gonzalez, Trinidad), p145-164-- 10.

The corpus-based studies in this volume explore biomedical research writing in English from a variety of perspectives. The articles in this collection delve into the lexicographic issues involved in building an electronic database of collocations and lexical bundles, offer insight on the teaching and learning of prototypical multiword units of meaning in biomedical discourse, and view written scientific English through the lens of such diverse fields as phraseology, metaphor, gender and discourse analysis. The research presented in this book forms the theoretical and methodological foundation of SciE-Lex, a lexical database of collocations and prefabricated expressions designed to help scientists write scientific papers in English accurately. The concluding chapter on FrameNet addresses frame semantics, whose application to the cross-linguistic study of scientific language will open new and promising avenues of research in the study of specialized languages.

Publishing your research in an international journal is key to your success in academia. This guide is based on a study of referees' reports and letters from journal editors on reasons why papers written by non-native researchers are rejected due to problems with English usage. It draws on English-related errors from around 5000 papers written by non-native authors, 500 abstracts by PhD students, and over 1000 hours of teaching researchers how to write and present research papers. With easy-to-follow rules and tips, and with examples taken from published and unpublished papers, you will learn how to: * prepare and structure a manuscript * increase readability and reduce the number of mistakes you make in English by writing concisely, with no redundancy and no ambiguity* plan and organize your paper, and structure each paragraph and each sentence so that the reader can easily follow the logical build-up towards various conclusions* write a title and an abstract that will attract attention and be read* decide what to include in the various parts of the paper (Introduction, Methodology, Discussion etc) * select from over 700 useful phrases * highlight your claims and contribution* avoid plagiarism and make it 100% clear whether you are referring to your own work or someone else's* choose the correct tenses and style (active or passive) Other books in the series: English for Presentations at International Conferences English for Academic Correspondence and Socializing English for Research: Usage, Style, and Grammar English for Academic Research: Grammar / Vocabulary / Writing Exercises Adrian Wallwork is the author of more than 20 ELT and EAP textbooks. He has trained several thousand PhD students and academics from 35 countries to prepare and give presentations. Since 1984 he has been revising research papers, and in 2009 he set up englishforacademics.com - a proofreading and editing service specifically for researchers.

  • How to Write an Introduction-- Writing about Methodology-- Writing about Results-- How to Write the Discussion and Conclusion-- How to Write an Abstract and Create a Title.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
This book is designed to enable non-native English speakers to write science research for publication in English. It is a practical, user-friendly book intended as a fast, do-it-yourself guide for those whose English language proficiency is above intermediate. The approach is based on material developed from teaching graduate students at Imperial College London and has been extensively piloted. The book guides the reader through the process of writing science research and will also help with writing a Master's or Doctoral thesis in English. Science writing is much easier than it looks because the structure and language are conventional. The aim of this book is to help the reader discover a template or model for science research writing and then to provide the grammar and vocabulary tools needed to operate that model. There are five units: Introduction, Methodology, Results, Discussion/Conclusion and Abstract. The reader develops a model for each section of the research article through sample texts and exercises; this is followed by a Grammar and Writing Skills section designed to respond to frequently-asked questions as well as a Vocabulary list including examples of how the words and phrases are to be used.
