Is Your Language Clear and Easy To Understand?

We should not speak so that it is possible for the audience to understand us, but so that it is impossible for them to misunderstand us.
Marcus Fabius Quintilianus

So how can we do this?

By simplifying our messages.

We can
use simple words and expressions—words that are familiar to our audience.
avoid long phrases and sentences.
avoid jargon and technical terms, and
avoid idiomatic language and abbreviations.

Communication is often difficult and challenging. So let’s do our very best to communicate clearly and effectively.
