    Default academic words

    Hello.
    I can not solve a problem/
    There is such a task/
    1. Rewrite this paragraph, using the words given below, to make it sound more academic.

    append conceive contradict convene
    demonstrate denote negate perceive
    reside trigger utilize the converse
    crucial likewise notwithstanding somewhat
    thereby whereby

    The study was initially thought up in order to validate a new method of enquiry by which genetic information could be used to predict disease. Our work goes against the findings of Hill (2001); indeed it would appear to show the opposite of what he claimed. We see our work as presenting a rather different view of the genetic factors which cause disease. Despite this, our work does not wipe out Hill’s, as his studies served the very important purpose of devising symbols to stand for certain tendencies, in this way facilitating further research. We hope that Hill will similarly find our work to be valid and that when international researchers meet next April, they will concur that much of value lies in both our and Hill’s studies. Our results are added at the end.



    So I did it as below, but I do not know, where to put the formal word utilize and what word can change at the end

    You don't need a word for 'at the end', because 'append' already means this. It means add to the end (of a document).

    Right. Good job. But isn't it funny that changing from Anglo-Saxon phrases to Latin and French words tends to make something formal and academic? I suppose academic English is meant to be less emotional, more objective, so perhaps this is why.
