  6. Happy learning

Influence of Vocabulary Size on Reading
  • Hu and Nation (2000) Even reading a fiction text
    for pleasure, a reader should possess
    approximately 98 coverage of the vocabulary in a
    reading text.
  • Nation and Hwang (1995) Two thousand word
    families of general service vocabulary and the
    University Word List (UWL) might cover about 95
    running words in general academic texts.

Influence of Vocabulary Size on Reading
  • Laufer (1989, 1992) An L2 reader had to
    recognize 95 (around 3,000 high-frequency words)
    of the running words of a general text s/he then
    can correctly gain adequate information from the
    reading text.
  • Hirsh and nation (1992) A reader who is able to
    read novels for pleasure should know 95-98 of
    the running words (about 5,000 words families).

Getting an Overview from Abstracts
  • Abstract
  • Managers in the service sector are under pressure
    to demonstrate that their services are
    customer-focused and that continuous performance
    improvement is being delivered. It is essential
    that customer expectations are properly
    understood and measured under the constraints
    that organizations must manage. The majority of
    the work to date has attempted to use the
    SERVQUAL (service quality) methodology in an
    effort to measure service quality. In this study,
    firstly the concept and factors of service
    quality are examined. Then a fuzzy AHP (analytic
    hierarchy process) is structured to evaluate the
    proposed service quality framework. A case study
    in healthcare sector in Turkey is presented to
    clarify the methodology.

    words, terms, and contents that you are reading

Identifying Main Ideas, Supporting Ideas and
  • Main ideas It is usually the first sentence of a
  • Supporting ideas It usually follows the main
    idea sentence or starts from the second sentence
    of the paragraph.
  • Details They are used to described supporting
    each idea. They usually include one or more
  • Inferences Based on the information you read,
    you may infer some results that are not showed in
    the texts.
  • Criticize According to the texts you read, offer
    the shortages or lacks of them.
  • Comments Write down your feelings, opinions,
    views, or systematic suggestions.

Processing and Evaluating the Information during
  • Holding your original attempt
  • Taking the information that you really need
  • Evaluating the advantages and disadvantages of
    the information
  • Extracting, highlighting, and recording the
    relevant information

Taking Notes
  • It may be the use of layout, capital letters,
    headings, systems of numbering, indentation,
    underlining, abbreviation symbols etc. One
    tendency of linear note-taking is that it is apt
    to become unnecessarily lengthy, whereas only a
    maximum of 10 per cent of the original is
    normally needed for recall purposes.

Writing an abstract (1)
  • Including research purpose(s), research
    question(s), research method(s), result(s) or
    finding(s), and implication

Research purposes
  • This article presents .
  • The present study aims to .
  • The main purpose of this (the) XXX study
    (research) is to .
  • ? This work presents a linear programming model
    with fuzzy multiple goals for analysing cost
    effectiveness during vendor selection.

Research purposes
  • The purpose of this paper is to develop a
    conceptual model on the role that information
    systems (IS) architecture planning plays in
    enhancing IS outsourcing's impact on IS
    performance and to empirically test the model.

Research purposes
  • This work presents a novel interactive multiple
    fuzzy objective linear programming (MFOLP) model
    for solving the aggregate production planning
    (APP) decision problem in a fuzzy environment.

Research method(s)
  • In order to sustain a competitive advantage, a
    manufacturer needs to anticipate this dynamic
    environment and offer the right amount of the
    right products at the right time to the right
    markets. Therefore, companies need to understand
    and analyze the different influencing factors.
    Many of these factors occur at periodical
    intervals and demonstrate a cyclic behavior. This
    article proposes a number of models and
    methodologies for anticipating and managing the
    different occurring cycles.

Research method(s)
  • Survey data were gathered and structural equation
    modeling technique is used to test hypotheses.

Research method(s)
  • The majority of the work to date has attempted to
    use the SERVQUAL (service quality) methodology in
    an effort to measure service quality. In this
    study, firstly the concept and factors of service
    quality are examined. Then a fuzzy AHP (analytic
    hierarchy process) is structured to evaluate the
    proposed service quality framework.

Result(s) or finding(s)
  • The implementation results demonstrate that .
  • The results (findings) show (reveal) that .
  • Results showed that the image projected by the
    vendors was a major factor in their selection,
    while reliability, responsiveness, and customer
    empathy were less important.

Result(s) or finding(s)
  • Therefore, the analytical results of this study,
    regardless of application outcomes or analysis
    methodology, provide decision criteria for
    manufacturing firms and introduce a new area of
    academic research.

Result(s) or finding(s)
  • The empirical test clearly demonstrates the
    important role that IS architecture planning
    plays in enhancing IS outsourcing's impact on IS
    performance. In other words, it shows that IS
    architecture planning provides a blueprint for
    establishing necessary technical and
    administrative platforms, based on which IS
    outsourcing can be effectively implemented to
    positively impact IS performance. Consequently,
    the key proposition in the conceptual model of
    the study has been empirically validated.

  • The empirical support of the key proposition that
    IS architecture planning enhances IS
    outsourcing's impact on IS performance makes it
    very clear that IS management should make due
    efforts to improve their understandings of
    various IS components, associated business
    processes, and their interactive relationships
    for better IS outsourcing management. Further,
    the identification of the antecedents of IS
    architecture planning will enlighten
    practitioners about how to improve their IS
    architecture planning competence.

  • Application of a linear programming model with
    fuzzy multiple goals for virtual business
  • Abstract
  • This article assesses the feasibility of
    virtual business investment planning models with
    specific virtual settings. The multiple criteria
    approach with fuzzy goals is deployed to analyze
    the available options as the model

Writing an abstract (4)
  • is formulated in compliance with long-term
    settings. The model is developed to determine the
    optimum solution and suitable virtual options.
    The multiple objective approach is utilized to
    determine the cost and revenue interactions
    between capital limitations and profitability
    from a long-term viewpoint of outsourcing
    effectiveness in terms of virtual decisions.

Writing an abstract (5)
  • The implementation is designed to survey the
    parameter variations of outsourcing quantities
    and escalation factors. The implementation
    results demonstrate that the use of both LP and
    multiple objective models enables business
    planners to employ a theoretical rigor not found
    in simpler decision models for virtual concepts.
