Scientific Writing (1, 2, 3)
Writing a PhD thesis might not be an easy task for all students. Even though students know they need to use a language which is different from their own, they may not know what sort of language to use in writing a thesis.
This workshop will provide an introduction to the linguistic resources and conventions of medical texts as an academic discourse.
Objectives
This workshop attempts to:
·      raise awareness of the type of language used in medical texts.
·      show how different linguistic resources make thesis writing clearer.
·      represent specific features of language used in academic/medical texts.
·      identify language conventions and learn how to use them to express ideas explicitly and clearly in medical texts.
·      raise awareness of how to use language to evaluate previous work, theories, and research.

·      show how linguistic conventions are used in making a judgement.
