Features of academic writing

Accuracy

In academic writing you need to be accurate in your use of vocabulary. Do not confuse, for example, "phonetics" and "phonology" or "grammar" with "syntax".

Choose the correct word, for example, "meeting", "assembly" , "gathering" or "conference".

Or from: "money", "cash", "currency", "capital" or "funds".

You also need to be accurate in your use of grammar. See: Accuracy: Introduction
