The bachelor’s and master’s thesis mainly uses professional language to communicate with its readers. This means that they need to be clear, to maintain a clean styling, and to include the technical terms that link it to the discipline and theme you are working on. How to achieve?
Keep professional terminology
A professional language in everyday life, if you do not spend your day and night on campus, will be difficult to achieve. Therefore, if you want to help your work, give enough time to the books you are about to quote or paraphrase. For example, if you read the publication in full, or if its thickness does not allow it, you will pay attention to the introduction.
Paying attention only to the parts you need to work at work usually means that you will not be able to get deeper into the issue itself. Professional publications should ideally pay attention to the whole study, work actively with them when creating seminar papers and projects, and look into the books outside the mandatory standards. This will help you very much in writing your final thesis. However, you will get terminology, taking into account your industry, listening to popular podcasts today, reading science books (perhaps physicists don’t need to present Martin Moses’ books) and watching programs from your environment.
You need to know technical terms
Each discipline has expressions that students encounter endlessly. Public administration popularity with terms such as self-government, state deficit and public procurement, economists know daily expressions of microeconomics, macroeconomics or market management. You would not believe how many students, however, will admit with the end of school that they have no idea about the meaning of these words. And that’s a mistake. When you write your work you will encounter new and old expressions. So get a vocabulary from your industry or turn on an internet search engine. This will help you to understand the exact wording or vocabulary of each technical word.
If you don’t remember the expressions, write them on paper. It may happen that you will need to know them when presenting your work, and such a tool will help you dig them deep into your memory. Simple and effective.
Stylistics is a problem
If you have been at the university for a year, you will see a lack of expert text at a glance. It sounds very strange, the sentences are long, you get lost in it. Even the overall wording of the individual sentences is somewhat gritty. There are two ways to avoid this, either to get the skills you need, but for several years of active writing, or to pay more attention to each section of the job.
The first rule is not to repeat yourself. The attentive eye does not miss that he has been reading the same sentence in a different word for two minutes, which is hardly anyone. Therefore, if you have already said something, do not look for a way to repeat it in other words. You will not stand, even if you need to put extra words.
The proper way is to paraphrase one’s own thoughts. Whatever you read, repeat your mind as you understand the text and put it on paper using professional terms. Take your time, think, look for binders in each text to create a real original at work. Express yourself briefly, if you need a sentence, use at most three consecutive simple sentences.
Half-page sentences are not dynamic enough and the reader loses them. In addition, the author of the text tends to forget to point the idea. Short sentences will certainly be more successful. Another important point is the use of verbs. Replace the active family with the bitter and see the difference. What does it mean? Instead of joining Subject is expressed use Subject expresses. Do you see the difference? For some students, the passionate family seems more expert, but it is not true. On the contrary, the active family not only keeps the reader on course, but you feel that you are at home in the subject.
Do not use unnecessary pronouns that deprive the text of trustworthiness (that subject, that ability, he has expressed himself, for these obstacles …). Avoid unnecessary adverbs. As the famous writer Stephen King said: “The road to hell is paved with adverbs.”
Put on his advice and strike out everything else.
Grammar our everyday
Of course, the technical text should be text without unnecessary mistakes. Commas, commas, uncertainty about whether you have used the selected word, you can verify all this in the Rules of Slovak Spelling, or entrust your work for chocolate to a student of the Slovak language who is at home in repair.
Don’t rely on your computer’s sixth sense. A lot of trivia will escape under stress and their system will not be found, but they will literally be a fist on the job.
Check your uppercase and lowercase letters as there are some changes here – especially in these little things. Finally, the commission will not notify you. The same rules apply if you use foreign language vocabulary or rewrite the author’s name.
Watch out for unwritten words
Needless to say, but it does. In a professional text, if you have not decided to create a dialectal or street Bratislava slang dictionary, there is nothing to do with vulgarisms of dialect words, archaisms, or your fancy words. Leave the artistic words to a classmate from the Slovak language.
Here it is important to note that if you paraphrase the author’s text, which contains an archaic, outdated song phrase too artistic, and so on, paraphrase it so that the text at the same time modernize. However, use the key terms that the text refers to. Your bachelor’s and master’s thesis must keep the timeliness and comprehensibility of the older materials
