The Benefits of Using English Dictionaries in Writing Academic Papers
Department of English, Nippon Medical School
Japanese writers of academic papers need to make effective use of as many English dictionaries as possible in order to select appropriate and idiomatic expressions for their writings. The increase in the number of dictionaries available in electronic form allows quicker and easier reference to example sentences, which in turn provides writers with increased opportunities to familiarize themselves with natural English.
