In other words’ (unofficial) guide to writing in plain language (part 2) | Caryn Gootkin, The Media Online

This guide is part 2 of Gootkin's useful two-part guide. Here's part 1, which focused on her general guidelines of writing in plain language. In part 2, she gives some specific examples for those rules, relating each to four parts of speech (grammar). Gootkin suggests people read part 1 first.

She covers:
  • nouns and pronouns -- five guidelines
  • verbs -- five guidelines
  • adverbs -- two guidelines.
