Fundamental Writing Tips and Techniques
by Philip Yaffe
Each "Communication Corner" essay is self-contained; however, they build on each other. For best results, before reading this essay and doing the exercise, go to the first essay "How an Ugly Duckling Became a Swan," then read each succeeding essay.
The principles of good writing are universal; they apply in all languages. However, different languages have different ways of expressing things. For example, English has a predilection toward using the gerund form, erg, "Running is good for health" rather than the infinitive "To run is good for health." By contrast, other languages, such as French, prefer the infinitive and would view the gerund as unnatural, and therefore distracting. However, in whatever language you write, such differences will always be secondary to the fundamental principles and techniques.
