ESL Academic Writing: Write with Clarity
Clear writers get to the subject, verb, and object quickly and coordinate additional, more complex information.
Academic writing often demands that we discuss complex ideas in long sentences. When we write long, complex sentences, we face several challenges. In this workshop, we discuss four principles to bear in mind when composing such sentences, principles that ensure that the meaning of a long sentence is clear to our readers.
Write 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.
