  • Make use of obvious transitions
    • On the one/other hand…
    • However,
    • Moreover,

    • It helps you check that you really have covered your main point.

CONVENTIONS - SENTENCES
  • Most sentences are too long
  • Use shorter sentences
  • Comma splices galore:
    • You cannot join two complete sentences with only a comma in English.
    • Use a semi-colon, a period, or a coordinating conjunction (and, but, so)
  • Some fragments: incomplete sentences
  • Read your work out loud

CONVENTIONS – WORD CHOICE
  • Word choice is often bland
    • Good - boring
    • Bad - boring
    • Nice – horrible
    • A lot – imprecise
  • Make sure you are using the right word for the right occasion

    • Sensible= with good common sense, logical, appropriate behaviour
    • Sensitive = easily distressed, upset or harmed
  • Brother was not very sensible when he asked his sensitive sibling to overexert himself.

CONVENTIONS – PUNCTUATION AND CAPITALIZATION
  • Possessive case is the major issue
    • Doodle’s brother
    • Doodles brother
  • If using Brother as a name, it must be capitalized
    • Otherwise, use the brother (no cap)
