Using your material
- Avoid using long quotations - use your ideas as much as possible.
- Demonstrate that you understand what the quotation means.
- When quoting you rarely need to include more than a whole sentence from another author.
- Always show where your words end and another's begin very clearly, either by using "..." quotation marks or introductory words, such as, Halliday says that...
- Always include an in-text reference if you are using an idea you have read - include the author name and year of publication.
- Add the full reference to the end of your work - if you are using the Harvard style, your references should be listed in alphabetical order by author surname.
