Multi-Word Verbs

girl-2771936_640We generally avoid using multi-word verbs in academic writing. Words such as, write down, take back, and look up are replaced with write, return, and search.

In academic writing, single-word verbs convey, or communicate a stronger message than multi-word verbs. See Academic Writing for more information.
