摘要:针对英语专业毕业论文“致谢”中存在的对象不明、文体混乱、内容牵强等问题,分析得出其原因主要是学生对“致谢”的写作要领不知,提出了相应的解决对策,并通过“致谢”实例加以佐证。英语专业毕业论文( thesis)一般被视为该专业学生所写的第一篇正规学术性论文,论文写作中的每个部分对该专业学生来说都是十分重要的,当然,“致谢”( acknowledgements)也不例外。学术性论文中的“致谢”是指作者以书面形式对帮助鼓励过自己完成论文的人所表示的谢意,它是论文的有机组成部分,一般置于题名页( title page)之后,独立成篇、单另成页。“致谢”不仅能反映论文的写作背景及作者学术的严谨态度和道德,而且在一定程度上还能反映作者的学术水平。然而在指导学生论文写作的过程中,笔者发现,不少学生难于写好“致谢”。
一、问题与分析学生论文“致谢”写作时存在的问题主要表现在以下三个方面。
1. 对象不明。例如:I am grateful to my parents, without their support, I cannotfinish my thesis. I am also thankful to all my classmates andteachers, without their encouragement, I cannot get down to writ2ing the thesis. And finally Iwant to thank the Foreign LanguagesDepartment of XXX University for p rovidingme a computer to typeand p rint outmy thesis.从对象分析,该“致谢”尽管提到了父母、同学和老师,但排名先后顺序不当,而对导师( supervisor)的指导却只字不提。看来,学生还不清楚“致谢”的主要对象应该是谁。
2. 文体混乱。例如:Itwas really a laborious task to accomp lish my thesis. Manypeop le gave me support and help in the p rocess of writing the pa2per. I’d like first to give my gratitude to my dear teacher, Prof.XXX who generously gave me her kind help and instructions dur2ing the whole p rocess ofmy paper - writing. Then I’d like to givemy many thanks to my classmateswho helpedme a lotwith my in2formation collecting and paper - polishing.从文体上分析,此“致谢”混用了正式文体和非正式文体。如laborious, gratitude属正式文体语言,短语a lot和缩合词I’d属非正式文体语言。另外在此用dear teacher来表示“导师”也不当或欠妥。可见学生尚未掌握“致谢”写作的文体。
3. 内容牵强。例如:Iwould like to thank my supervisor, Mrs. XXX who helpedme draw an outline of the thesis and correct my mistakes in thethesis. Also Iwant to thank allmy teachers. I learned a lot fromthem, not only the knowledge but also the working attitude. More2over, I thank my classmates aswell. During the studywe becamegood friends, and spent happy time. And finally I am grateful tomy parents, without their support, I cannot accomp lish my study.从内容来看,本“致谢”除第一句外,其他句子都与撰写论文无关,这表明论文由无忧论文网www.51lunwen.org整理提供都与完成论文有关,而且具体实在。向导师致谢是因为在“我”论文写作期间导师提供了很大的学术帮助和不断的支持。向同学致谢是因为他们花时间跟“我”讨论论文中的有关问题并提出了好的意见。向XXX图书馆致谢是因为它给“我”提供了有关论文的所需资料。
三、佐证示例以下“致谢”对象具体、文体正式、格式规范,实事求是,态度诚恳。比较符合西方英语学位论文“致谢”的写作这一具体要求:“Lauding one’s p rofessors, and humbling one’s own ef2forts are considered inapp rop riate. ”[ 8 ]AcknowledgementsIwould like to exp ressmy heartfelt gratitude to my supervisorProfessor XXX for her encouragement, guidance and advice to methroughout the writing of this thesis.Iwould also like to extend my sincere thanks to ProfessorXXX for his insightful advice on my choice of top ic and his helpfulsuggestions.In addition, Iwould like to thank my classmates XXX andXXX for their time spent brainstorming and discussing with me.Finally, Iwould like to give special thanks to XXX Universi2ty for allowing me to use its library; the staff is of great assis2tance.尽管英语专业学士学位论文“致谢”的写作内容因人而异,但“致谢”写作要点大致如上所述,万变不离其宗。学生明确了“致谢”对象、了解了“致谢”的文体、掌握了“致谢”的写作实质,并应用这些写作要领, 写好“致谢”就不再难了。
