Synopsis

How to Write a Precis is designed to teach students how to read and comprehend a text, and then reduce its length without omitting the essential details or radically altering the style of the original. It contains theoretical background, practical step-by-step instructions on how to write a precis, sample precis, and a variety of exercises. Also included are sections on popularizing and abstracting. Its tightly organized structure and straightforward, direct style make How to Write a Precis the ideal text for students and teachers of translation, of English as a second language, and of all types of English Composition. It is intended for use in universities, community colleges, high schools, and in adult education. The exercises have been carefully chosen and organized so as to provide optimum hands-on learning experience for the reader; they vary in difficulty, so that the teacher may select those that suit the level of proficiency and the special interests of a particular group of students.
