What Reviewers Are Saying
'I absolutely agree that there is a need for some more specific guidance re vocabulary for native and near native speakers a neglected group in HE as far as writing development is concerned. ... Navigability will be key. If it can work intuitively, this book could be a winner.' - Kate Williams, Oxford Brookes University
'The material is up-to-date and I agree that there is a gap in the market for a work of this nature.' - Lucinda Becker, University of Reading
'The author has done a thorough job in researching the market with no obvious omissions as far as I can see. I would certainly recommend a book to my students that encouraged them to develop an interest in the words they use as a vehicle for their ideas.' - Bryan Greetham, author of How to Write Better Essays
'I like the format; I think that a small, 'accessible' little guide will appeal to students (especially) native speakers more than a full-sized book. I could see myself using/recommending such a book. I think the proposal is most interesting.' - Hayo Reinders, Middlesex University"
