Welcome to AWE — a reference source for the details of Academic Writing in British English. AWE aims to give helpful advice, rather than to be prescriptive - it does not tell you what to do. It is not a dictionary or an encyclopedia. It is meant for students in Higher Education in the UK, including non-native speakers.
AWE has moved beyond the purely experimental stage, and has proved useful; but it is not complete. It is currently in a developmental stage. We welcome any comments, but cannot commit ourselves to replying individually. TO COMMENT ON ANY ARTICLE IN AWE: Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
[The 'talk' tabs at the top of pages - the previous system - have been attacked by spam, and weren't much used. *** So that system IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED. * [It may be worth trying the old system: some 'talk' pages are still open for comment. *To do so: Click on the talk tab at the top of a page you want to comment on - and write your thoughts, ideas, comments or criticisms in the blank page that opens. It will help us if you give your name and e-address.]
