3 Strange words, long sentences and lost meanings

In reading for a purpose it is not unusual to get stuck on unfamiliar words and concepts or struggle with complex ideas and sentences. This section suggests tactics for coping with unfamiliar words (and inadequate dictionaries), unpacking complex sentences and retrieving lost meanings. In order to do this we will draw on an extract taken from a book, Crime and Society in Britain, by Hazel Croall (1998) which is a social science text. It thus contains more ‘conceptual’ or ‘technic

4.5 A critique of substantial equivalence

In the late 1990s, the principle of substantial equivalence came under sustained attack, and at this point it is worth examining both the points of criticism and the responses. In October 1999, Erik Millstone, Eric Brunner and Sue Mayer published a critical commentary on substantial equivalence in the journal Nature.

Before you read some extracts from this article it is worth commenting both on the nature of the article and who the authors are. The article is a 'commentary' publi

1.6 How does aspirin relieve pain?

Aspirin acts at the site of damaged tissue to block the start of the nerve signal to the brain, the mechanism by which we experience pain (Section 2). It does this by inhibiting the formation of prostaglandin which is the active agent responsible for the sensitisation of the nerve endings. Prostaglandins (there are several related types) are responsible

12.2 Interaural time delays: non-continuous sounds

The average distance between human ears is about 20 cm. Therefore, if a sudden noise comes at you from the right, perpendicular to your head, it will reach your right ear 0.6 ms before it reaches your left ear. For a sound coming from directly in front of you there will be no delay, and at angles between, the delay will be between 0 and 0.6 ms. Therefore there is a simple relationship between the location of the sound source and the interaural delay. It is this delay that enables us to locali

Carbon nanotubes
It is necessary to form a stable dispersion of nanotubes in order to properly integrate them into polymeric systems. This can be achieved by treating them with acid to oxidise the tube surfaces. The tubes will then spontaneously disperse in an aqueous medium. The viscosity of these suspensions is analogous to that of polymers; it increases gradually with concentration up to a critical point (at about 0.7 vol%) where entanglement occurs. However, their separation is determined more by surface
