Requests and Replies

Part of the English for Academic Research book series (EAR)


In this chapter you will learn that
  • how you structure and specify your request is a strong determinant of whether your request will be met

  • intelligent use of numbering and white space can increase the chances of your recipient replying with the correct information

  • you should avoid focusing just on your own needs, but also try to understand the recipient’s viewpoint

  • you can avoid mistakes in English by inserting your replies within the sender’s original text
