Giving the sentence unity


All parts of a sentence should concern one thought There are 3 causes of unity error First, placing unrelated ideas in a sentence, violets

unity You can avoid this error by (1) putting unrelated ideas in separates sentence (2) subordinating an idea or (3) adding words that show relationship Excessive detail is another cause of lack of unity. So can mixed constructions Active and passive voice in same sentence can violet unity

Arranging sentence elements for clarity


Clear writing requires that we follow the established

rules of grammar These rules are based on custom and logical relationship For example, dangling modifiers confuse meaning So do unparallel constructions, pronouns without antecedents, and subject-verb disagreements

Care in paragraph design


Paragraphing shows and emphasizes organization

It involves logical thinking


The contents of a paragraph should concern one topic

or idea (unity) Generally paragraphs should be short Short paragraphs shows organization better than long ones Most readers prefer to read short paragraphs A good practice is to question paragraphs over 10 lines The topic sentence can come first, middle or last
