WHEN YOU WRITE THIS…

 

DO YOU MEAN THIS?

 

It has long been known that…

 

I can’t remember the reference

 

This is of great theoretical and practical   importance

 

This is interesting to me

 

 

It has not been possible to provide definite   answers to these questions

 

The experiments didn’t work out

 

High purity/very high purity/ extremely high purity

 

Composition unknown

 

Three of the samples were chosen for detailed study

 

The results of the others didn’t make sense, so we   ignored them

 

Typical results are shown

 

Only the best results are shown

 

Although some detail has been lost in reproduction,   it appears to be clear from the original micro- graph that…

 

It is impossible to tell much from the original   micrograph

 

Agreement with the predicted curve was:

perfect excellent good

reasonably good satisfactory

fair

not perfect

as good as can be expected

 

Agreement with the predicted curve was:

good fair poor

very poor awful

really awful imaginary non-existent

 

These results will be reported at a later date

 

I might get round to this sometime if I don’t   change careers

 

It is suggested that… It is believed that… It seems   that…

 

I think that…

 

It is clear that much additional work is required   before a complete understanding can be reached

 

I don’t understand it

 

Unfortunately, a quantitative theory to account for   these effects has not yet been formulated

 

Neither does anyone else

 

Correct within an order of magnitude

 

Wrong

 

It is hoped that this work will stimulate further   research

 

This paper isn’t very good, but neither is anyone   else’s

 

It is obvious

 

…but impossible to prove
