    1. Project Descriptio

      Don't waste space on whitespace, but keep your proposal readable. Double check on the formatting slack they they give you, but head your sections with bold, indented text but don't break the line afterwards. Give a few spaces or a colon and head into the paragraph

    2. 1)

      Don't be shy about numbering arguments in-paragraph, especially in the intellectual merit section. Listing several ideas in sequence makes your writing feel 'blippy' - moving too abruptly. By explicitly offsetting with numbers you implicitly prepare your reader for rapid topic switches. They also take up less space than "this, next, then, last, etc."

    3. I propose to developphonetic discrimination in mice as a model for speech perception. I will thendirectly testthe predictions made by competing neurolinguisticmodels

      End your introduction with a one-sentence description of your project. Use italics to make in-paragraph text easy for your reviewer to pick out.

    1. Participant data: can help you determine if you are actually reaching the people you intend to. Focus groups: how did people experience the program? How could you improve it from the participant perspective? Satisfaction surveys: did participants get what they wanted from the program? Staff perception data: How did the program go for staff? Were expectations realistic? What did they see in terms of qualitative changes for participants? Program adherence monitoring: how well did you follow your program plans?

      Can we revise the text color or format so that this section is easier to read and visually more manageable? Each beginning term, for example, could be formatted in this way:

      "Participant data: Can help you determine if you're actually reaching the people you intend to reach."

    1. Places a greater emphasis on determining unit of analysis

      In this explanatory subsection, can we perhaps format the text color or font so that the main point in each numbered section stands out visually? For example, a revised format might look something like this:

      "1. Places a greater emphasis on determining unit of analysis. When conducting a content analysis, you'll want to first determine what your unit of analysis may be. . . ."

    1. These two categories exist as opposite extremes on a continuum.

      I would suggest that we begin a new paragraph with the sentence "These two categories..."

      We may also want to very briefly reiterate the relevant topics. For example, the first sentence of the new paragraph might read something like "Idiographic and nomothetic research represent two different research categories existing at opposite extremes on a continuum."

    2. [2.20]

      just an observation - we may want to round the estimated reading times to the nearest half-minute. I think there's some potential for confusion among readers interpreting an estimated reading time such as "6.57" - this estimate is so specific that it might not seem at first glance like an estimated reading time. Rounding that number and changing the format - i,e., "6.57" [current] to "7 mins" [suggested] - might help students clearly understand what we are trying to communicate. I do think the estimated reading times are potentially very helpful for readers, though.

    1. Turn on the option to use github pages with the docs folder Github should now display a url where you can view the web-book.

      Numbering on these lines should be 22 and 23, respectively

    1. Compared to paper artifacts such as laboratory notebooks, computer files do not offer a proper structure to manage temporal and evolutive data.

      Don't agree with this statement at all. Blogs are nothing but linear chronological structures.

    2. Paper holds temporal properties which are not yet integrated in computer.

      Also, weirdly overstated. There were plenty of products and meta data even in 2009 that was available to determine provenance and iteration.

    3. Blog tools are designed as publishing tools; they do not support iterative thinking the way paper notebooks do.

      This statement seems to be fixed in traditional, old-school blogging (one idea = one post) and doesn't consider other forms that adapt/extend other ways to represent temporality/change/iteration.

      As one example, live-blogging techniques which incorporate rapid updating of new information through chronological mini-posts, manual time-stamping of new material, etc. Also. plug-ins that allow annotation, image uploads, Google Docs with version control, etc.

      Also, WP post/page formatting options with HTML, typography, etc., can augment re-ordering of information to designate change.

    1. Abhráin

      The formatting of e-books on Internet Archive does not allow hypothesis.is users to annotate the books’ text. In annotating Hyde’s Love Songs of Connacht for the EN6009 Annotate-A-Thon, I have attached annotations to the text beneath the scanned images. Extracts and corresponding page numbers are placed at the beginning of each annotation, in order to properly contextualize my responses.

      Remove new paragraph here.

    2. 5

      Where is the footnote mark in the body of the text?

    3. Is this wrapping from the second line? It's hard to read with only one line wrapping, so adjust if possible.

    4. the night (before I go hunting)Ialreadyhave a plan

      If this is a complete sentence - and it seems like it is - then both Malay and translation should have sentence punctuation. Same for other examples. If the Malay isn't a complete sentence, adjust the translation to make that clear.

    5. 19

      Use same punctuation in first line of example as in third.

    6. 15

      First line of example doesn't have same punctuation as the translation line.

    7. 10

      First line of example doesn't have same punctuation as the translation line.

    8. (9)

      First line of example doesn't have same punctuation as the translation line.

    9. Possessive marking withpu‘poss

      I would move this whole part of the table to table 9.3, which would group all of the punya examples together in table 9.3 and the pu examples in table 9.3. As it is right now, it's not clear why you'd split the tables up the way you have.

    10. 0

      Where is the footnote mark in the text body?

    11. -

      Use en-dash.

    12. -

      No spaces. Use en-dash.

    14. (5a-5d,

      No spaces. Use en-dash.

    15. (5j-5l)

      Should be (5j-5l) without spaces, but make the - an en-dash instead.

    16. n(hum)punyanp(inal)

      Is this supposed to be on the line above, with "mama..." on the next line? Same for all examples in (5). If not, I'm not following what structure you're trying to point out here.

    17. (1)

      Don't split an example across two pages.
