What does the word moreover mean and how is it used? Do I actually need the word actually? And what about these beautiful, very long and nested sentences that are commonly used in the German language, for example in articles, scientific documents, or just a description of a presentation such as this one? John Brown, PhD candidate at Alpen-Adria Universtität Klagenfurt and native speaker, illustrated common mistakes and false usage of words when writing scientific papers.
The kickoff presentation of our Scientific Writing Series, “Don’t Add an Experiment to an Experiment”: Writing clearly for publication in English held by John Brown was a big success. With drinks the audience learned about common mistakes and false usage of words when writing scientific papers. Do and Don’t lists summarize the most important points for non-native English speakers.
