User:Vanished user adhmfdfmykrdyr/Notes for writing in Simple English
Sometimes, I find it hard to write Simple English. Reading advice from others regarding my own writing and comments to others, the following are some tips I should try to remember to follow. Some are written in short hand for me.
- Almost, not nearly.
- Last, not final when discussing place or finish.
- People or person, not sportspeople or sportsperson when context is clear they are people who play sports.
Names and places
- United States, not United States of America except when in formal titles where apropiarte.
- Avoid using conjunctions.
