Conventions sentences

  • 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

  • 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

CONVENTIONS - WORD CHOICE


Conventions word choice1

  • CONVENTIONS – WORD CHOICE

  • An important distinction in English:

    • 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

  • 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)
