Introduction

Composing is a few choices. You choose your topic, your approach, your sources, and your thesis; when it’s time to write, you have to choose the words you will use to express your ideas and decide how you will arrange those words into sentences and paragraphs as you work on a paper. You make more choices as you revise your draft. You may ask yourself, “Is this really the things I mean?” or “Will visitors appreciate this?” or “Does this noise good?” Finding terms that capture your meaning and convey that meaning to your readers is challenging. Whenever your trainers compose such things as “awkward,” “vague,” or “wordy” in your draft, they truly are helping you discover you to work on word choice that they want. This handout will explain some issues that are common to term choice and provide you with strategies for determing the best terms as you revise your drafts.

That it can sometimes take more time to “save” words from your original sentence than to write a brand new sentence to convey the same meaning or idea as you read further into the handout, keep in mind. Don’t be too attached with that which you’ve currently written; if you’re happy to begin a phrase fresh, you may well be in a position to select terms with greater quality.
