like to add
something here like "helpful tips": if your essay includes a foreign
language, include a translation into English; use American English; try
to avoid "in this essay I will" and other uses of the first person; if
you have only referred to a source
and not cited something specific from it, include the bibliographic
information in a footnote, not on the Works Cited page, etc. What would that be called?
