A Brief Manual On Composing A Research Paper On Spoken Language

Writing a research paper on any subject follows basically the same process. Creating one on spoken language doesn’t have to be any different than any other type of research paper. Here is a brief manual on how to compose a research paper:

  • You have been given the subject of spoken language. Now you have to create a topic based on that subject. One of the easiest ways to do this is to brainstorm about the subject and try to get some ideas on what topic you would like to write about. Try to decide on a topic by brainstorming and thinking about what your audience may want to read about. You also should be passionate about what you are writing about as well. You will create a much better paper if you are interested in what you are writing about.

  • Once you have your topic, you can begin your research. Start researching knowing that you have to have a thesis sentence to write your paper about. As you research more and more you will probably develop your topic sentence. As you research make sure you take good notes and keep them well organized. Once you have decided on a topic sentence you can narrow down your research to expand on that topic sentence since you have to prove or substantiate your topic sentence. Try to research from at least three different sources so you have a wide range of information and you can thoroughly research your topic.

  • Create an outline based on your research and your notes. Make sure your outline includes all of your main ideas and take interest in the order in which you are putting your ideas. Your outline should include your introduction which must have your topic sentence usually last in your introduction. Also try to include a “hook” sentence as well so that your readers will want to read further on in the essay. Include all of your main ideas in your outline as well as your conclusion.

  • Create your rough draft based on your outline. Use your outline just like a roadmap and write your research paper. Make sure all of the points you have included in your outline are in your rough draft. Once you have completed your rough draft make sure you edit the contents to make sure you have no grammar or spelling issues. It also may be a good idea to have someone else read over your work and give any opinions on making it better. Once all of that is done you can create your final draft.
