ABSTRACT

Academic writing is an integral part of various academic pursuits, including publishing research papers, submitting official reports, and delivering professional lectures. This type of writing is characterized by specific features that set it apart from other forms of writing. These features include the frequent use of nominalization, which involves converting verbs or adjectives into nouns, the passive voice, which emphasizes the action rather than the actor, technical terms that are specific to the field of study, and complex sentences that contain multiple clauses and modifiers. This paper aims to delve deeper into these characteristics by analyzing examples from the article “Testing a model of teaching for anxiety and success for English language teaching”. By doing so, this paper hopes to provide readers with a better understanding of academic writing and offer insights on how to effectively employ these features in their own writing.
