The sentences below give you useful vocabulary for introducing, describing and evaluating a source negatively, i.e. in a way that shows you disagree with the source. An important part of developing your argument is to present opposing arguments and to show why they are not as convincing as your own (a process called rebuttal). You will often need to give only a brief rebuttal, but you should always do it fairly — don’t insult your reader’s intelligence by not representing properly the strengths of the opposing arguments.
