Reflection of my assignment

Today, my assignment of synonym and preference came back. The mark was 64%, which is fairly good. However, the tutor told me some advice in the mark.

First of all, as I mentioned before, I am weak in article. I dropped many "the" in the essay. If the phrase "English language" is used in sentence, "the" is necessary. If it is English, "the" is needless. Article is difficult for me because we do not have such a system in the Japanese language. Some resources claim that the is used when to mention specific things in the material whereas "a" is used for the general. Maybe this is my carelessness, so I must improve this gramatical mistake.

The second problem is word choice in academic discourse. I am always sensitive to word choice, the tutor pointed out my bad choice. Especially, "basically" is not an academic word. I do not know the reason, but I have to keep it in my mind.

Thirdly, this is about my reference. According to tutor, etymonline is not a good resource. It is like a weblog and there are many mistakes. If we use oline resource, we have to check whether it is correct or not. Even though it is permitted to use online resource, we have to check the availability.
