Combining the expertise of literary stylistics and critical discourse analysis Sam’s editorial work goes beyond basic proofreading. Sam not only reads but comprehends what he reads with critical acumen and analytical brilliance. His perfectionism and meticulous attention to detail helped me bring the final draft of my thesis to a manuscript of publishable standard retaining the original voice which I have long worked to develop.

Dr Bennett was recommended to me as a competent proof-reader a while ago. Since then he has proofread three, perhaps more, very long and difficult papers on cognitive linguistics. All of them have been published in high standard international periodicals and the reviewers commended the language of the papers. It is not only his native speaker competence that makes Dr Bennett a very good proof reader. His PhD degree in linguistics, and very interesting education in Developmental Studies and International relations, also make him a very competent and inquisitive “content proof reader”. His lucid and inspiring comments undoubtedly improved the quality of my papers. I will certainly use Dr Bennett’s skills and knowledge in my future academic work.

I highly recommend the services of Dr. Samuel Bennett as a proofreader. Dr. Bennett is not only a native speaker, but also holds a doctoral degree in Linguistics and works as a scholar at university. Being a specialist in the field of discourse analysis makes him extremely sensitive to issues of language and its multiple meanings. Moreover, Dr. Bennett’s work is not limited to the correction of the language, but he also formulates highly accurate substantive remarks, making a significant contribution to the author’s work. Finally, he is a very precise, reliable and timely person, which makes cooperation with him really enjoyable.

As an academic publishing in English worldwide, I take great care to give my writing a professional native polish. I’m very happy with my collaboration with Dr. Sam Bennett on parts of my book, published by Oxford University Press. He has an eye for detail, pays attention to appropriate register and keeps deadlines! Very much recommended!

Biuro tłumaczeń „SKJ Languages” od kilku lat współpracuje regularnie z Panem Samuelem Bennettem. Współpraca dotyczy korekty językowej artykułów naukowych z różnych dziedzin przeznaczonych do publikacji w naukowych czasopismach zagranicznych w języku angielskim, a także referatów wygłaszanych na konferencjach międzynarodowych.
Z pełną odpowiedzialnością rekomendujemy Pana Samuela Bennetta jako lingwistę doskonale realizującego korekty, którego profesjonalizm, sumienność i terminowość jest nam bardzo dobrze znana.

We have been cooperating with Dr Bennett for some time and he has been doing proofreading and language polishing of our papers for scientific journals, conference papers and presentations. So far all of the papers have been published in high Impact Factor journals (with rigorous language proficiency) and although dealing with our papers requires subject specific terminology, there were only ever a few language comments. What is important is that Sam not only does the correcting job, but also very often suggests alternative language solutions, which is of vital added value. The price to outcome ratio is very effective and I am sure we use his skills in the future.
