The following typology of style is intended to suggest some criteria that could be used to discern and understand stylistic choices that produce different effects that are conventionally expected in different contexts of communication. In many cases, written material can be classified as a certain document format. For example, a shopping list looks different when compared with a car manual, or a letter compared with a script for a play. Knowing what type of text we are reading helps to clue us into what sort of language we might expect the writers to use, how they will organize their material, whether they are likely to include graphs and other illustrative material, and so on.
It is important to consider the audience and your purpose while choosing your style of writing. If you are writing for complete outsiders or novices, then your text should include definitions and detailed explanations. If writing on delicate or controversial issues, then make sure your content is not loaded with any offensive connotations. Sometimes, it is not possible to quantify a situation precisely. In this case, use means or averages.
Summarizing can be defined as presenting the substance of a given work briefly. A summary should convey the key points of the work, and at the same time, should be significantly shorter than the original. It helps to understand what the paper is all about as it is a shorter version of the detailed original.
It not only neatly ties together all the previous information included in the paper, but also calls for some sort of action. It gives reasons why the reader should do/believe something and motivates them to actually do it.
Purposes of Summarizing
The general context
Plagiarism means copying or in some way reproducing someone else’s work without giving them credit or acknowledgement. In many ways, it is a form of stealing consistent with the etymological root of ‘plagiarism’, which in Latin means ‘kidnapping’. Using another’s work without permission and/or credit signals one of three different situations: copyright breach, plagiarism or invasion of privacy (Branscum, 1991; Howard, 2003; Leval, 1990).
