Use sentences which are reasonably short and not too complex.
Too much information in a single sentence makes it difficult to understand. It also increases the likelihood of grammatical errors and ambiguity.
Work through the following activities to check your understanding around writing appropriate sentences.
Avoid ‘roundabout’ phrasing.
Be as specific as possible.
Avoid excessive pre-modification.
Avoid excessive use of nouns as pre-modifiers.
Use active verbs rather than abstract nouns.
Avoid excessive nominalisation.
Avoid excessive use of passive voice.
In some situations the use of passive voice is required, but overuse increases ‘roundabout’ phrasing and length.
The most common causes of ambiguity are careless use of pronouns, poor punctuation and vagueness.
If you did well, then you can congratulate yourself!
If you did not get all of the activities correct, then you might need to re-read the information and take the activity again.
Sometimes it helps to take a break, so go for a walk, have a stretch, and revisit the information with a clear head.
Practice brings awareness to your writing which will help you succeed!
