How many Themes? 2

Typical Academic Themes

There are different kinds of single and multiple Themes in academic writing.

The most typical are single Themes consisting of one complex andoften quite long noun group also functioning as Subject.

Other common Themes are multiple Themes usually consisting of only 2 or 3 word groups. Besides the subject, these multiple Themes often include connectors, sometimes circumstances and less often, evaluation words.


If you are having trouble understanding or identifying the grammar and function of different words in the Theme stage, an advanced grammar course will help you.
