Use strong verbs



Why not use strong verbs instead of weak ones in your writing? Weak words can make your writing look wordy and rather dull.

This is what I recommend …

Instead of …                  write …
conduct an analysis        analyse
give an answer to            answer
hold a meeting                meet
provide a solution            solve
send an invitation to        invite

It’s easy when you know how, isn’t it?
