Academic Phrasebank

Having trouble phrasing what you mean to say in your essay, report, thesis or dissertation? Not sure how to be clear but succinct in explaining your rationales and findings?

If you haven’t already found it – take a look at the Academic Phrasebank – it’s full of useful, reusable, customisable phrases to help you clarify your academic writing.

The phrases in this resource have been taken from authentic academic sources. The original phrases were ‘harvested’ from 100 postgraduate dissertations completed at the University of Manchester and many more phrases have been incorporated from academic articles drawn from a broad spectrum of disciplines.

Academic Phrasebank is a freely available online resource.

The original Academic Phrasebank material is available from the Manchester University web site.

However, the Academic Phrasebank 2015 Enhanced Edition (Personal Copy) is available as a pdf for £4.80
