This book is not a traditional style manual that prescribes mechanical
details such as the forms for levels of headings, typing requirements, and so on. A
number of excellent style manuals, including the Publication Manual of the
American Psychological Association, already cover these matters . Neither will you
find here a discussion of the mechanics of standard English usage; it is assumed
that you have already mastered these. Finally, it is also assumed that you have
already selected an important research topic, applied sound research methods, and
analyzed the data.
English for Business Communication is a short course for people in or preparing for work who need to improve their English in these key areas: socialising, telephoning, presenting, taking part in meetings and negotiating. With its modular approach it is easy to fit into any teaching programme.
As the title suggests, the focus is on developing speaking skills in the contexts of day-to-day dealings with customers, clients and suppliers of services or goods. Great emphasis is also placed on developing listening skills.
Given that scientific material can be hard to comprehend, sustained attention and memory retention become major reader challenges. Scientific writers must not only present their science, but also work hard to generate and sustain the interest of readers. Attention-getters, sentence progression, expectation-setting, and memory offloaders are essential devices to keep readers and reviewers engaged. The writer needs to have a clear understanding of the role played by each part of a paper, from its eye-catching title to its eye-opening conclusion.
The writing test contains two compulsory tasks, namely Task I and Task 2. In Task 1, you are asked to describe graphs, bar charts, pie charts and diagrams and in Task 2 you are given an essay title on a fairly general subject.
variety of comprehension strategies as needed (e.g., generating and responding to
essential questions, making predictions, comparing information from several sources).
The selections in Recommended Literature, Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve illustrate the
quality and complexity of the materials to be read by students.
A highlighter allows you to go through a lot of printed information quickly and highlight those page numbers, titles, or chapter headings that you don't have time to read at that moment but that you might want to return.

Adhere to character limits Title tags are critical because search engines not only use them when deciding what a web page is about, but they also appear in search results as the first line “Title” of your listing. Think of title tags more as a "Title Keyword Tag" and include keywords that users would likely search for to find the content on that page. Keep them short and sweet. They are the first thing people searching for your site will see, and can never be more than Google’s limit of 69 characters, including spaces. ...
This is a slim book, but it contains a wealth of information. The author, a veteran science writer, tells us pretty much everything we need to know about her demanding field. She discusses finding the story you want to tell, conducting the research, and developing the story structure, and she breaks each down into its component parts. In the chapter titled "Research and Interview," for example, she discusses the proper use of press releases; how to choose your interview subjects (and even what time of day is best to conduct an interview); and the importance of being able to spot...

Captain Lew Golden would have saved any foreign observer a great deal of trouble in studying America. He
was an almost perfect type of the petty small-town middle-class lawyer. He lived in Panama, Pennsylvania.
He had never been "captain" of anything except the Crescent Volunteer Fire Company, but he owned the title
because he collected rents, wrote insurance, and meddled with lawsuits.
He carried a quite visible mustache-comb and wore a collar, but no tie.
We follow in the “constructionist” tradition of mathematician and educator Seymour Papert
and his students and colleagues at MIT. In developing the Logo programming language for
children Papert argued that programs children write function as mathematical ‘objects to think
with’ and that their concreteness affords a powerful kind of learning (Papert, 1980). Later work of
Papert’s former students and colleagues (e.g.
The authors of books with titles similar to this one seem to share Mr Gradgrind’s belief
that ‘the facts’ can speak for themselves. This author believes that it is appropriate and
helpful sometimes to express an opinion as well as act as chronicler.
Each textbook provides a speciﬁc perspective on the discipline that it aims
to introduce. Therefore, writing this book has not only been a challenge for
me because of the didactic demands that each textbook imposes on its
writer. It also forced me to rethink my own ideas on morphology in
confrontation with those of others, and to come up with a consistent
picture of what morphology is about. This perspective is summarized by
the title of this book, The Grammar of Words, which gives the linguistic
entity of the word a pivotal role in understanding morphology....

The book you’re holding in your hand (or reading on the screen) owes its genesis to a
tongue-in-cheek exchange with Steve Fleischer of Flying Tiger Web Design (www.
flyingtigerwebdesign.com), who suggested I should write Powers Object-Oriented PHP.
Actually, he phrased it rather differently. If you take the initial letters of the suggested title,
you’ll get the drift . . . But Steve had an important point: he felt that books on object-oriented
programming (OOP) frequently assumed too much prior knowledge or weren’t easily
adaptable to PHP in a practical way.
In beginning to write this chapter, I tried to find words to “sugar coat” the title. Perhaps the word
“budget” could be avoided altogether. Words like “financial map” or “operational guide” might be
suitable alternatives. After all, for those of you already in the workforce, you probably associate the
word “budget” with “dread” or “drudgery” or some other less than flattering term. No doubt, some
employees will question the need for a budget.
