Department of Swedish, University of Gothenburg Although the language in an academic text may vary greatly, it still follows a few general guidelines - some of which are presented here, together with a few illuminating examples. A certain genre awareness is important to all writing. Different texts are intended for different purposes and therefore use different language. A distinctive trait of example texts is that they are written as non-fiction, aimed at informing about the colloquial of affairs, presenting known facts and, in particular in this context, new knowledge developed in accordance with the requirements of scientific texts, in terms of both form and expression. Academic non-fiction can be described as impersonal, which is not to say that all word texts should be dry and bureaucratic.
