The sanity of plain language

Editing_and_proofreading_blog_53I like a good post about using plain English.

I particularly hate the use of complicated words because people think it sounds clever.

So I like this post.

About The Proof Angel

I am a freelance editor and proofreader, working with a wide range of clients from large companies to individuals. I can help you to communicate clearly by carrying out a final check, or by suggesting ideas get your message over. I also have a sideline in textiles, as The Rainbow Angel.

  1. Oh I wish my bank would do this. Month after month they send out pamphlets with “important information” in them, in phrases so full of gobbledegook and incomprehensible sentences that they may as well not bother, as I glance at the offending literature, shake my head in despair and file them under R (for rubbish – in the bin).
