Types of Summaries

Annotated Research: Summaries

Question: What are some different types of summaries?

Answer: “Examines seven different types of summaries, including [an] abstract, précis, minutes, abridging digest, locational digest (?), restructuring digest (?), and review.” OMT Ratteray. Written Communication, 2, 1985, 457-472. P. 209.

Comment: I put in the full bibliographic entry, because I’m sure that, like me, my readers have some questions about at least two of the types listed. RayS.

Title: “Annotated Bibliography of Research in the Teaching of English.” JD Marshall and RK Durst. Research in the Teaching of English (May 1986), 198-215.
