Acknowledgement For English Assignment Ideas

GUIDELINES FOR WRITING ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

A page of acknowledgements is usually included at the beginning of a Final Year Project, immediately after the Table of Contents.

Acknowledgements enable you to thank all those who have helped in carrying out the research. Careful thought needs to be given concerning those whose help should be acknowledged and in what order. The general advice is to express your appreciation in a concise manner and to avoid strong emotive language.

Note that personal pronouns such as 'I, my, me …' are nearly always used in the acknowledgements while in the rest of the project such personal pronouns are generally avoided.

The following list includes those people who are often acknowledged.
Note however that every project is different and you need to tailor your acknowledgements to suit your particular situation.

Main supervisor
Second supervisor
Other academic staff in your department
Technical or support staff in your department
Academic staff from other departments
Other institutions, organizations or companies
Past students
Family *
Friends *

* If you wish to acknowledge the help of family members or friends make sure you restrict the wording of your thanks to a relatively formal register.

Study the two examples below. In each one, the acknowledgement of a friend and a family member has been expressed in an inappropriate manner. Read the acknowledgement and then answer the questions that follow.


Example 1.
I wish to thank my boyfriend Jack for his assistance with the statistics used in this report.

This sounds too personal. Why? Type your suggestions here.

 Suggested Answers
1.There is no need to mention the relationship with the author. 
2.The acknowledgement appears too informal because of the use of the first name without the family name.
