The Body of Your Paper


The body refers to the central section of the paper, the portion in which the writer develops the details of the argument, gives supporting evidence, and shows how the evidence supports the argument. The method by which your paper accomplishes this task may be quite individualized. The way you structure the body of your paper will depend on the specifics of your argument and your evidence.
