INDV101 ‘Language’ Referencing Style Sheet Page 1 of 9 INDV101 – Referencing and Citation Style Sheet This handout tells you exactly how to format all in-text citations, full references, and language examples for your Field Notebooks and Field Report. You should use these formatting conventions for all of your work in INDV101 this term. You will undoubtedly have to learn and follow a wide variety of referencing and citation formats as you write papers in different classes. Each discipline seems to have its own rules and idiosyncrasies about how you should format referencing and citation! The important thing is to learn how to follow a style sheet. This style sheet is based on the referencing and citation style of the Linguistics Society of America. If you would like more information, you can see the full LSA style sheet at: http://www.lsadc.org/info/pubs-lang-style.cfm In this class, you are only responsible to know the style rules that are given in this handout, not all of the LSA style rules (nor any other standard referencing style)! Section 1: How to use and cite required scholarly references: In scholarly writing, whenever you use an idea that you found somewhere other than your own brain, you must cite the source of that information. There are a very few cases in which citation is not required, and these include: When you are using a specific transcription or measurement system like the International Phonetic Alphabet, you do not normally cite the source of that system. For this class, when you are using information provided in class lecture, you do not need to cite the lecture notes. If you provide a definition of a key term, you should cite the source of the definition. If you assert a claim that you have read about, you should cite the source of the claim. It’s always better to err on the side of over-citation, than it is to miss a citation (as doing the latter is tantamount to violating the Code of Academic Integrity, and could cause you to fail this class!) The rule for citation of references is this: when, in the text of your assignment, you make a claim or write a sentence that you got from some other source, you should include an ‘in-text citation’ for that claim, noting its source. Then, at the end of your assignment you should have a separate page, headed ‘References’, that contains a ‘complete citation’ for every source that you’ve cited in your text. Every in-text citation must correspond to exactly one complete citation on the reference sheet, and every complete citation on the reference sheet must correspond to at least one in-text citation. If you did research that did not yield any material that you used in the text of your assignment, you should not cite the source of that unused research on your reference sheet. But you should be very careful to include every source that you cite in the text in your reference sheet.
