学术写作中You的误用

在学术著作中,一般不会使用第二人称代词 you。以下例句存在这种误用情形。

  1. As most of you are probably aware, Spelaeoecia bermudensis is categorized as “critically endangered” by the IUCN.
  2. You may have noticed that the second term in Eq.(3.1) has been omitted.
  3. In Fig. 2, you can see the intersection of these two curves.
  4. You can clearly divide these results into two groups.

如下所示,我将上述例句做了修改,以此说明如何以符合学术著作的习惯表达相同的信息。

  1. As most readers are probably aware, Spelaeoecia bermudensis is categorized as “critically endangered” by the IUCN.
  2. The reader may have noticed that the second term in Eq.(3.1) has been omitted.
  3. In Fig. 2, we can see the intersection of these two curves.
    (3’) In Fig. 2, the intersection of these two curves can be seen.
  4. You can clearly divide these results into two groups.
    (4’) These results can be clearly divided into two groups.
