What Is MLA Style? All fields of research agree on the need to document scholarly borrowings, but documentation conventions vary because of the different needs of scholarly disciplines. MLA style for documentation is widely used in the humanities, especially in writing on language and literature. Generally simpler and more concise than other styles, MLA style features brief parenthetical citations in the text keyed to an alphabetical list of works cited that appears at the end of the work. MLA style has been widely adopted by schools, academic departments, and instructors for over half a century. The MLA publishes two authoritative explanations of MLA style: the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers and the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing.
Freebase The Best iPad Text Editors [Best Of The best five iPad text editors, according to me. I write a ton on my iPad these days, which lets me work wherever I like (usually in bed) and concentrate way better than I can working on my giant-screened iMac. Thanks to our complex blogging back end here at Cult of Mac, it’s still easier to add pictures and other bits and pieces with the Mac, but the writing part is so much better on the iPad that I try to do it as often as I can. I figured I’d show you a few of the apps I used. This is a list of the five writing apps I still use. Writing Kit $4.99 First up is Writing Kit, the app I use every day. It has a built-in browser for research (and you can send links and photos straight to the editor), a “Quick Research” popover window which lets you look things up, perform conversions and a whole lot more, and support for various bookmarking sites. This last part is great. That’s not to say it’s perfect. Byword — $2.99 Yes, Byword is a powerful Markdown editor. Adding punctuation is smart, too.

MLA / APA / Chicago Bibliography Composer, Notecards, Outlining Main Page - KeyWiki Analyse lexicale d'un texte ou d'un discours avec Antconc - Bafo L’objet de ce billet est de présenter une méthode simple, rapide et gratuite pour effectuer l’analyse lexicale d’un ou plusieurs textes. Étant loin d’être un spécialiste confirmé de la question, je me baserai sur l’ouvrage L’analyse de contenu de Laurence Bardin, plus particulièrement sur la section intitulée « Analyse lexicale et syntaxique sur un échantillon » (p. 82 à 92). Je me limiterai ici à exposer la façon dont on peut calculer la richesse du vocabulaire utilisé dans les textes analysés. Principe de base Ce « score », quel est-il ? Je suis heureux d’écrire un billet sur l’analyse lexicale Dans la phrase précédente, O=11, V=11, donc 0/V=1. Examinons maintenant ce vers d’Aragon : Je tombe, je tombe, je tombe Ici, O=6, V=2 (car les seuls mots différents sont « je » et « tomber »), donc O/V=3. Si Aragon avait écrit Je tombais, je tombe, je tomberai d’une part, on aurait alors pu croire à du Cabrel, et d’autre part, cela n’aurait rien changé au calcul : ici aussi, O/V=3. Attention quand même
