Abstract:It is quite common that College students' writings are often loaded of ordinary words and monotonous sentence patterns because they often deliberately avoid some language structures and conjunctions. This kind of sketchy and hollow writings may hinder the improvement of English writing skill. This paper first researches this avoidance phenomenon from three aspects: lexis, syntax, and discourse, then explores the reasons behind it, and finally puts forth some instructive suggestions for improving this condition.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
