SIMPLICITY





Simplicity of style has reference to the choice of simple words and

their unaffected presentation. Simple words should always be used in

preference to compound, and complicated ones when they express the same

or almost the same meaning. The Anglo-Saxon element in our language

comprises the simple words which express the relations of everyday life,

strong, terse, vigorous, the language of the fireside, street, market and

farm. It is this style which characterizes the Bible and many of the

great English classics such as the "Pilgrim's Progress," "Robinson

Crusoe," and "Gulliver's Travels."
