Key Nouns in Academic Writing

 

The language used in research projects and academic papers of all kinds can be described as grammatically simple (use of passive forms, modals, and simple verb forms) and semantically dense (jargon, register and terminology).

   The report claims / states / emphasizes that…

   Our study shows / proves / claims that…
