New word & more

Filed under: What I learned today! — Cyndy @ 3:49 pm

Today I learned a new word, and I learned to be more careful with my papers.

New word: Dissertator – a form of the word dissertation, someone who disserts. A dissertation is a lengthy discussion of some subject.

Used in a sentence: When I begin my dissertation, I will be a dissertator. 

Reference

dissertate. (2009). In Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary. Retrieved May 13, 2009, from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/dissertate

Also learned to more carefully edit my papers and double check all of the grammar and spelling settings in Microsoft Word. Feedback from instructor was very helpful, but I have much to learn about APA style. It seems so awkward to mention an author only by last name within the body of the paper. It also seems awkward and repetitive to refer to certain things so specifically over and over again. I’m sure I will get used to it, and begin to look for those common mistakes.
