I set about creating an online resource. The Academic Phrasebank is a book produced for researchers and students who want to improve their academic writing skills. John Morley, who is Director of University-wide Language Programmes, wrote The Academic Phrasebank to help both writers of English as a second language and native speakers. The book provides advice and contextual examples on a broad range of academic writing topics.
When did you come up with the idea of The Academic Phrasebank and what prompted you? I suppose it was back in the s when I was working on a part-time masters degree by distance. This was before email or the internet and I was living in a fairly isolated situation in rural New South Wales. Initially, I struggled with some of the academic assignments, and I soon came to the realisation that to be a successful academic writer, it was important to acquire a repertoire of suitable phrases.
By phrases, I mean word combinations serving a useful communicative function in the text whilst adhering to the stylistic conventions of the academic genre. This insight was informed by my own extensive experience as a teacher of English as a second language and as a learner of other languages. It also coincided with a growing awareness, within the field of applied linguistics, of the central role played by phraseology in language and in language development.
Later in my work at Charles Sturt University in Australia, and subsequently at Manchester, in my role as lecturer in academic writing, I realised that a phraseological resource is exactly what non-native speaker academic writers need and I set about creating an online resource for this group of people.
The Academic Phrasebank was initially offered as a web resource. Why prhasebank you decide to turn it into a downloadable product?
Resource of the Week #169: Academic Phrasebank
I received quite a few requests for the resource to be available as a pdf file. The Academic Phrasebank has now sold in over 80 countries world-wide, how has word spread? I think the Academic Phrasebank surfaces quite frequently in Google searches on questions of academic writing. In fact, I think it is one of the most popular websites for academic writing.
Also, these days, many universities all over the world, especially in English speaking countries, refer their own students to the site.
The Academic Phrasebank has provided a rich area for research, and this has in turn attracted quite a lot of interest within the field of English for academic purposes. As well as continuing to explore and map academic phraseology, questions about the boundary between phrasal recycling, which is considered to be a legitimate practice, and textual copying without acknowledgementwhich is considered to be illegitimate, and about the role phraseology plays in developing writers and in helping writers to shape and express their ideas, are areas I am currently working on.
How have you found the Click2Go platform and what did you especially value from the University? UMIP have been completely supportive, helpful and professional. I am free to develop the intellectual content of the product, whilst the commercialisation of the resource is wholly managed by the UMIP. I have been talking to the learning development staff at the University Library about the creation of a range of online tasks and exercises to accompany the Academic Phrasebank.
We should be able to trial the first of these early next year. With respect to the resource itself, well, there are still many years of work yet to be done and a good deal of research yet to be carried out.
