Abstract

Young children often write as they speak. But the way we speak and the way we write isn't quite the same. When we speak, we often use many clauses (which include groups of words) in a sentence. But when we write - particularly in academic settings - we should use fewer clauses and make the meaning clear with fewer words and clauses than if we were speaking.
