Article writing in English(Part 2)

In each of the body paragraphs (there are usually 2 or 3 body paragraphs in the article) the ideas presented in the introductory paragraph are expanded. You can expand body paragraphs by providing details and examples. For instance:

  1. When the Internet was first introduced it was used primarily by scientists, now it is common in every classroom.
  2. The struggle between the two leading pigs, Napoleon and Snowball, with its consequences felt by the population of the farm clearly illustrates how totalitarian leaders will put their own confrontations ahead of the population they are supposedly leading.

The body paragraphs should expand on the main idea and end with a sentence that summarizes the expanded idea. At least two examples or experimental results of the research are included in each paragraph to support the main idea.

Summary paragraphs summarize your article, unlike the introductory paragraphs. Start your summary paragraphs by quickly recounting the main ideas of body paragraphs. for example:

  1. The Internet in the home, benefits, and ease of use of modern computer systems…
  2. Through the use of symbolism in the portrayal of characters, setting, and style, George Orwell’s Animal Farm delivers a harsh criticism of totalitarian society.

The sentence before the last should explain the main idea of your article. for example:

  1. We have now passed from the industrial revolution to the information revolution.
  2. Animal Farm is a deceivingly simple allegory presenting totalitarian society in all its grimmest aspects.

The last sentence can be your prediction of a particular issue based on the information and statistics presented in the article. It can provide a suggestion for future studies. for example:

  1. The next step: The complete disappearance of the workplace.
  2. Considering the vast changes in the global political structure of the last twenty years, one can only hope that mankind has learned the lessons so elegantly told in George Orwell’s Animal Farm.

Use the main verbs to express your idea because these verbs show more emphasis than auxiliary verbs. For example:

  • Instead of “the workplace seems to have evolved”, it is better to write “the workplace has evolved”.

When writing an article in English, do not directly translate what you say in your native language to English word by word.  First, you should learn the common structures used in the English language. (The structure of English sentences is quite different from those of other languages and generally follow the pattern below:

Subject (noun or pronoun) + Verb (main or auxiliary) + object (direct and indirect) + complement (adverbs: manner, time, and place)
