Glossary of University and Research Terms
The PhraseBook also includes a glossary with common university and research terminology. A great deal of English academic vocabulary derives from Latin and Greek. Given the large number of foreign elements in English university and research vocabulary, it can be difficult to guess the meaning of an unfamiliar word. Knowledge of some Greek and Latin helps to decipher the meaning of many terms, not least for speakers from parts of the world with other classical languages. Read more...

Indispensable book for non-native speakers
'There are various books dedicated for writing papers and scientific reports for non-native English speakers. To put thoughts on paper usually is not a trivial task for many students and practitioners even in their mother tongue. This task grows enormously if paper has to be written in English by a non-native English speaker. Therefore any assistance, which can improve writing skills and style and reduce hardship of communicating in English with power and a few words, becomes indispensable. The "PhraseBook for Writing Papers and Research in English" serves this purpose splendidly. It is one of a few books, which really helps me, a non-native English speaker, in my work. Unlike many related books and guides, the Phrasebook allows the users to work on own writing; improve the text structure; expand the text with phrases and words most frequently used in academic English. It also encourages the users to improve their vocabulary by suggesting alternative expressions, helping them to familiarize themselves with scientific terminology, give their writing greater richness and variety. I enjoy working with this book and believe if you apply the recommendations, it will produce better a written more polished text. Highly recommended.' Reviewer, Amazon.com.
