In academic writing, you will need to be able to support your arguments with quotations from other sources. This sample essay includes a source text and an extract from a student essay which uses quotations from the source text. The comments will show you how to use quotations in academic writing.

WRITING TASK

Read the source text, an extract from a book by T.M. Jermainly. Then read the extract from a student essay which uses quotations from the source text to give definitions of two key terms.

SOURCE TEXT

Autocthanous indiginealty is defined as the state or condition of being born, brought up and living as an adult within an area of 25 kilometre radius, in addition to having both parents and at least two grandparents fulfilling the same condition. Non-fulfilment of either or both these criteria negates membership of the group. This condition is in opposition to the state of peripatetic perpetuity. This latter term permits any degree of movement throughout the subject’s life. It has been estimated (Jenkins 2005: 76) that membership of the autocthanous indiginealty group, following a continuing decline over the period following the industrial revolution, now comprises fewer than 1% of the population of the United Kingdom.
