LLEAP / JDEAS information about the abstract

Pubblicato il 12/11/2017

The abstract for your presentation should be 300 words (with a 10% tolerance), and you should let me have a print out by the final week of the semester. Please also send me a copy as an email attachment.

The abstract should be written in an appropriate formal style, using the present or future ('will') tense: 'I show /will show how this variety of English developed during....'

However, it doesn't have to use metalanguage (i.e. it doesn't have to make references to the presentation, as in the above example). An alternative approach is simply to summarize the contents of the presentation in an efficient way for the listener. But probably most writers would use a self-referential style.

Since it is short, you should take care to correct it, and to be careful with punctuation and spelling as well as grammar, lexis, and structure - but don't over-structure! 

The abstract counts towards the assessment of the module, along with your presentation, the slides, your handling of the questions, and your contribution to the course.
