Writing for a technical audience with perfect sentence structure Writing for a technical audience with perfect sentence structure Presentation Transcript

  • Writing for a Technical Audience with Perfect Sentence Structure and Pace Technical PR from Pinnacle
  • Approach Subject matter, target audience and level of complexity all affect how you write your content.
  • How to achieve consistency It’s important to maintain a certain level of continuity with any written content that you produce, and there are certain rules that can help with this. 1. Sentence Structure 2. Punctuation 3. Diction
  • Sentence Structure Consistency is key across all content types Subject and predicate in every sentence, however pace differs on audience Long sentences are not necessary – technical audiences will be turned off Be clear and concise Use efficient and accurate language
  • Punctuation Too many commas and hyphens appear clumsy and interrupt flow Semi-colons should often be used instead of commas Read your work out-loud, does it have a good rhythm?
  • Grammar Ensure chosen verbs match the subject Avoid obscure or generic words Avoid fragmented sentences (i.e. without subject or predicate)
  • Finally Read the entire piece through or get someone else to read it If it can be read effortlessly and without difficulty, it’s probably a good job!
