comment APA (sixth edition) citation for the Fourth Assessment Report
+1 Perfect, to the point answer. There seems to be no need to cite the individual authors as feared in the OP.

comment Picture-based Identification Dictionary
"... to look up a picture, then read the tag that points to the name of the item in the picture!" that makes it more of a Thesaurus?

comment Scientific Citation
But is it accepted as a standard or convention? Is it the predominantly used alternative? Because even I am seriously interested to know.

comment Replacing actually with a more formal alternative
The use of greatly and similar qualifying words/ phrases may always be contested in an academic report. What is great to you may not be (so) great to another objective reader/ reviewer. Generally, the "by about thirty per cent" would take the place of greatly, leaving it to the reader to decide how significant thirty per cent is.

However, let's not take my answer alone. I suggest we wait for any better ideas further down.

comment How do I keep up with current written English language?
@RenéVanBelzen: English is different from most other languages. It (She) is far too much of a fashionista who dresses differently in different places and at different times, yet always seems to get it right and never fails to impress!

comment How do I keep up with current written English language?
@justkt: Now I see the point, I think. "...official version of some languages (France has..." that seems to explain the difference in perspectives.
