Specialised Vocabulary

In order to manage all types of lexical cohesion in academic writing, especially synonymy and taxonymy, you need specialist or technical vocabulary of two kinds:

Academic Research Vocabulary

All academic writing requires specialised/technical vocabulary related to academic research which is common to most academic disciplines. e.g. equate, contrast, examine, query, rationale, analysis.

Discipline Specific Vocabulary

All academic writing requires specialised/technical vocabulary or terminology related to the particular specific disciplinary field. e.g. 'locus of control' in sociology or ‘resource allocation’ in commerce.
