The Stylistics-Whats Your Name
Taken out of context, this sentence is so general it could be used as the introduction to a declaration by any "oppressed" people. Seen within its original context, however, it is a model of subtlety, nuance, and implication that works on several levels of meaning and allusion to orient readers toward a favorable view of America and to prepare them for the rest of the Declaration. From its magisterial opening phrase, which sets the American Revolution within the whole "course of human events," to its assertion that "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" entitle America to a "separate and equal station among the powers of the earth," to its quest for sanction from "the opinions of mankind," the introduction elevates the quarrel with England from a petty political dispute to a major event in the grand sweep of history. It dignifies the Revolution as a contest of principle and implies that the American cause has a special claim to moral legitimacy--all without mentioning England or America by name.
The Stylistics-Whats Your Name
Fourth, all of the charges against George III contain a substantial amount of strategic ambiguity. While they have a certain specificity in that they refer to actual historical events, they do not identify names, dates, or places. This magnified the seriousness of the grievances by making it seem as if each charge referred not to a particular piece of legislation or to an isolated act in a single colony, but to a violation of the constitution that had been repeated on many occasions throughout America.
Note: This page reflects APA 6, which is now out of date. It will remain online until 2021, but will not be updated. There is currently no equivalent 7th edition page, but we're working on one. Thank you for your patience. Here is a link to our APA 7 "General Format" page.
When writing in APA Style, you can use the first person point of view when discussing your research steps ("I studied ...") and when referring to yourself and your co-authors ("We examined the literature ..."). Use first person to discuss research steps rather than anthropomorphising the work. For example, a study cannot "control" or "interpret"; you and your co-authors, however, can.
In general, you should foreground the research and not the researchers ("The results indicate ... "). Avoid using the editorial "we"; if you use "we" in your writing, be sure that "we" refers to you and your fellow researchers.
Clarity and conciseness in writing are important when conveying research in APA Style. You don't want to misrepresent the details of a study or confuse your readers with wordiness or unnecessarily complex sentences.
For clarity, be specific rather than vague in descriptions and explanations. Unpack details accurately to provide adequate information to your readers so they can follow the development of your study.
Balancing the need for clarity, which can require unpacking information, and the need for conciseness, which requires condensing information, is a challenge. Study published articles and reports in your field for examples of how to achieve this balance.
You should even be careful in selecting certain words or terms. Within the social sciences, commonly used words take on different meanings and can have a significant effect on how your readers interpret your reported findings or claims. To increase clarity, avoid bias, and control how your readers will receive your information, you should make certain substitutions:
Writing papers in APA Style is unlike writing in more creative or literary styles that draw on poetic expressions and figurative language. Such linguistic devices can detract from conveying your information clearly and may come across to readers as forced when it is inappropriately used to explain an issue or your findings.
For cases like this, OpenType offers so-called stylistic sets. You can define up to twenty variations of your alphabet and put them into your font. Stylistic sets do not necessarily exclude each other: more than one set can be activated at the same time. One stylistic set, for instance, could consist of letters with alternative descenders, another set of alternative shapes (like the a in our exampe), a third one of alternative diagonal legs for R and K. Whatever suits your design best.
If you want more stylistic sets, all you need to do is add the appropriate suffix to the glyph name: .ss02 corresponds to the second stylistic set, .ss03 to the third one etc. Since the maximum number of sets is twenty, your suffixes can go all the way up to .ss20.
If you stick to this naming convention, Glyphs can build the feature code for you. All you need to do is open your Font Info (Cmd-I), go to the Features tab and click on the circled arrow button in the bottom left corner:
It is a good idea to give your Stylistic Sets appropriate names, so your users can choose wisely in their OpenType-aware applications. Go into File > Font Info > Features and choose one of the ssXX features. Then, in the bottom right window pane, usually reserved for remarks, comments or code backups, you write Name: followed by a space and a human-readable English name for your set:
Attention: Mac names must be specified in their respective 8-bit Mac encoding, which means that all non-ASCII characters must be escaped with a 2-digit hex code. In our example, 1 0 specifies the MacRoman encoding, therefore the ö (lowercase o with diaeresis) in the last line needs to be escaped with \9f because 0x9F is the hex code for ö in MacRoman.
We are a small company making fonts for Southeast Asia. Our expertise covers Thai, Lao, Burmese, Khmer, Cham, Tham and Vietnamese. Working with experts around the world, we can also research other Southeast Asian writing systems and produce fonts for the languages they cover.
