Style – سبک نگارش

What do we mean by style?

Have you ever wondered what your instructors mean when they write “wordy” or “passive voice” or “awk” in the margins of your paper? Do you sometimes sense that your sentences could be stronger, clearer, shorter, or more effective? Do you often feel that you know what you mean but do not know how to say it? If you often get feedback from your instructors that you need to “tighten your prose” or “look at your word choice,” you may need to work on your writing style. When you read your writing it may seem perfectly clear, but other people may not be getting your point. If you have checked your grammar, punctuation, and even that handy thesaurus on your computer and still find a ton of circled words and question marks on your graded paper, you may need to work on your writing style—the way you put together a sentence or group of sentences.
