ESL Workshop- Academic Writing with Clarity
Clear writers create concrete actors and actions. (Part 2)
Academic writers often over-use nominalization and employ other grammatical forms that make it difficult for readers to easily understand exactly what a sentence means. In this workshop, we examine the need to express actions in verbs and the even greater need to create short, concrete actors, when they do not exist.
Writing with Clarity
Writing clearly in English is a challenge for native and non-native writers alike. What is it in a sentence that makes readers judge it as complex and unclear or as direct and easily understood? What general principles can we follow that will enable us to revise a sentence so that readers will judge it as clear and concise? These are the questions we will explore throughout these workshops.
