Using simple sentences

Method

Use simple sentences to communicate clearly.

Use simple sentences make important points.

You can use compound sentences to add detail, for example adding justification and further detail to what you are presenting, thus helping people to see the real value. And then summarize in a simple sentence.

Example

The service is expensive.

I love you.

We are firing on all cylinders and all of our businesses are working well, with good results all round. This is as good as it gets. (compound sentence with simple summary)

Discussion

A simple sentence is made up of a single clause.

The cat sat on the mat.

Simple sentences in communications are generally easy to understand, as they are short and to the point. Too many simple sentences, however, are likely to appear rather simplistic and may end up requiring more words to say what could be said in fewer compound statements.

Generally, clean communications makes good use of simple sentences, although compound sentences may also be kept clean by reducing clause size.

A final simple sentence after the detail of a compound sentence can summarize the key point and add impact.
