I have also attached a copy of an examples she gave us to use as a guide called: “Heat accumulation deep in the Atlantic: global warming on hiatus”.
Lecture Notes on how the language of research news page should sound like.
• Main claim treated as news and placed at the beginning • Stress on news: why the finding is important
• Focus on developing a narrative • actors, what they did and what they found • explanations of what the research means for the everyday life of the individual.
• Lack of shared knowledge, so technical terms are avoided. When they are used, they are defined • similes are used to link new knowledge to familiar, everyday knowledge
• Knowledge presented as more certain and important • More informal tone through use of quotes, informal language, highlights accessibility of information.
• Popular texts: use • everyday, informal language • lower lexical density • greater clausal complexity (of speech)
We usually refers to reader and writer as members of contemporary society • use of you to include reader
