AWE aims to give helpful advice, rather than to be [[prescriptive]] - it does not tell you what to do.  It is not a dictionary or an encyclopedia.  It is meant for students in Higher Education in the UK, including non-native speakers.

This '''&lt;big&gt;AWE&lt;/big&gt;''' is entirely separate from the AWE app produced by the Survey of English Usage at UCL, which aims to teach learners in a structured way how to write formally in English. This may be accessed at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/english-usage/apps/awe/. 

In 2014, AWE moved to its current site from its previous berth at the University of Hull.
 As part of the move, we have updated the mediawiki software on which it operates.

 As a result, &lt;big&gt;'''&lt;big&gt;&lt;big&gt;SOME CHARACTERS DO NOT DISPLAY AS INTENDED&lt;/big&gt;&lt;/big&gt;'''&lt;/big&gt;.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;       Please be patient. The difficulty is mostly with [[IPA]] characters, and some punctuation marks. &lt;br&gt;We are struggling to solve it.


 
                      '''&lt;big&gt;TO COMMENT ON ANY ARTICLE IN AWE:&lt;/big&gt;''', or to contact us,&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;     Send an e-mail  to &lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;          '''&lt;big&gt;&lt;big&gt;academicwriting@hotmail.com&lt;/big&gt;&lt;/big&gt;'''

 [The 'talk' tabs at the top of pages - the previous system - have been attacked by spam, and weren't much used.
        So that system IS CURRENTLY '''SUSPENDED'''. 
 [It may be worth trying the old system: some 'talk' pages are still open for comment. 
     To do so: 
          Click on the '''talk''' tab at the top of a page you want to comment on - 
          and write your thoughts, ideas, comments or criticisms in the blank page that opens. 
          It will help us if you give your name and e-address.]

== Guides ==
AWE is intended to help you become a better writer. This is a matter of taste and style.  AWE does not set out to be judgemental: our aim is to advise you how to write in a style appropriate to your studies. We do not set out to teach you how to write formally in English; see http://www.ucl.ac.uk/english-usage/apps/awe/.

* [[Good writing]]
* [[Correctness]]
* [[Referencing]]
* [[Advice leaflets]] (from Hull University's Study Advice Service)

&lt;div style=&quot;border:solid black 1px; width:45%; float:left; padding:1em; margin:0.5em 0; margin-right:1%;&quot;&gt;

Structured courses on aspects of writing provide further depth to many of the topics covered in AWE. We do not set out to provide a structured course to teach you how to write formally in English; many other resources do this, such as the similarly named AWE app available (for: iPhone 3-6, iPod Touch, iPad and iPad mini, and Google Play for Android) from the Survey of English Usage at [[UCL]], at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/english-usage/apps/awe/.
