I'm writing a Hungarian academic paper which needs an English abstract.
The abstract (not the title!) has to be between 120 and 150 words.
Could someone look throuh my jabby Engrish translation and correct my mistakes?
Playing on the word ’role-playing’ - The analogue RPGs and their educational application
'This article discusses the phenomenon of tabletop role-playing games and live action role-playing (larp), which are the main analogue forms of the so called role-playing game (RPG), a popular hobby group. Through the review of an often cited definition it is showed that the analytical definition of RPGs and their distinguishment from other forms of role-play are impossible in the traditional sense.
The second part of this paper focuses on an educational application of RPGs. Despite the noticably growing interest in the edu-larps in the last few years the current level of the relevant academic literature leaves a lot to be desired. The study methodology is generally insufficient, the texts refer to each other for support and commit a conceptual mistake – the majority of authors confuse the specific notion of larp with the general idea of role-play and use them as synonyms. As a result, a significant part of the materialized edu-larps do not possess the typical attributes of larps, but they give up exactly the essential parts of the form. The way out might be a more accurate classification of role-playing forms and a deeper understanding of their academic literature.'
