We have already covered many aspects that are essential for giving your writing a clear and appropriate style: using evidence and logic to argue rather than giving personal opinion (pp. 19–30) being objective and neutral (pp. 19–30) being specific (p. 29) using source material correctly and precisely (pp. 31–48) using appropriate verbs and other phrases to report and evaluate sources (pp. 49–53 and 68–70) using ‘I’ and ‘we’ appropriately (pp. 71–4) using cautious language (pp. 75–7) using content and signposting to give structure (pp. 80–6). The rest of this chapter will take you through the other features of language necessary for a clear writing style.
