從段落到篇章:學術寫作析論技巧

本書雖以指導學術寫作為目的,唯因重點放在講解析論技巧之上,故此作者所提及的寫作指引,亦適用於其他議論寫作。比如第三章(頁64 - 83)指出比較與對照的三項用途,並介紹相應的三種寫作方式。他如第六章(頁142 - 157)則提出舉例包括舉「實例」與「概念例」兩種方式,而要訣在於能切中主題。另各章均附實例文章的討論問題與寫作策略分析,讀者如詳加研讀,自能對各種析論技巧有更深入的了解。


質性研究寫作的第一本書

本書分為十章,撇除個別專述論文格式的章節,書中內容往往亦為議論寫作所必須注意者。如第一章「文字經營的一般準則」(頁21 - 46),作者指出行文應少用長句、少用生僻字詞及慎防語意謬誤等,議論寫作亦應當如此處理。至於第八章「稱職的質性描述」(頁257 - 295),作者節錄兩篇主題不同的文章,分析文章的寫作方式,並附有修訂建議,讀者如能從實例中領會通用的寫作原則,當可大大提高議論寫作的能力。


演講縱橫:必勝十五招

作者憑藉多年來的講道心得,說明演講者須注意的問題,涵蓋的範圍甚為全面。比如第三章「鎖定目的」(頁33 - 46),作者強調演講目的必須從觀眾的立場來決定,並應視乎情況採用不同的語氣與措辭,便是相當實用的建議。至於第十二章「記憶猶新」(頁165 - 176),作者則介紹有助記憶演講內容的「串連法」和「聯想法」,並建議演講者不宜依賴講稿,亦是經驗之談。讀者如通閱全書,演講時自能更得心應手。



演講的技巧

全書共分七章,專門講論中文演講技巧。其中第一章「演講的基本原則」(頁3 - 27),作者概括出用詞平易、造句簡約與結篇短悍是最重要的三項原則,並稱之為演講技巧的技巧。而第四章「有力感人的技巧」(頁103 - 105),作者指出內容具說明力是演講者追求的重要目標,並提出引語徵信、列舉分承及對比明義等十種常用的表達技巧。此外,全書節錄多篇演講辭,讀者若能加以細讀,當能更確切地掌握各種演講技巧。
