Precision and Clarity in Writing - Chapter Summary

This chapter covers topics such as modifiers, nouns and precise word choice. Its informative video and text lessons can guide you in developing the ability to write with precision and clarity. A clear sentences checklist is provided that can help you write with the full comprehension of your readers in mind. Once you've studied the lessons, you might be able to:

  • Avoid redundancy and repetition in your writing
  • Use more precise language

The lessons include entertaining short videos that teach with the aid of animation and graphics. Expert teachers present the information through conversational narration.
