Dictionary on how to read my scientific papers

"It has long been known . . . ."
I didn't look up the original references.

"A definite trend is evident . . . ."
These data are practically meaningless.

"Of great theoretical and practical importance . . . ."
Interesting to me.

"While it has not been possible to provide definite answers to these matters . . . ."
This was an unsuccessful experiment, but I still hope to get it published.

"Three of the samples were chosen for detailed study . . . ."
The others made no sense.

"Typical results are shown . . . . "
The best results are shown.

"The most reliable results are those obtained by Smith . . . ."
He was my fellow.

"It is believed that . . . ."
I think.

"It is generally believed that . . . ."
My friends think so too.

"It is clear that much additional work will be required before a complete understanding of the phenomenon is possible."
I don't understand it.

"Correct within an order of magnitude . . . ."

"It is hoped that this study will stimulate more work in this field."
This is a lousy paper, but so are the others in this crummy area.

"Thanks are due to Joe Blow for assistance with the experimental work, and George Fink for valuable discussions."
Blow did the work, and Flink explained to me what it meant.

"A statistically oriented projection of the findings . . . ."
Wild guess.
