George Orwell’sWriting Tips

• "Probably it is better to put off using words as long as possible and get one's meanings as clear as one can through pictures or sensations." Meaning = plan before you write!

Page 17: Intro Pres

G. Orwell Continued...• Orwell's English Language Rules:

• "i. Never use a metaphor, simile or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print.

• ii. Never use a long word where a short one will do.

• iii. If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out...

Page 18: Intro Pres

• iv. Never use the passive when you can use the active.

• v. Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent."

(However, in an exam showing offisn't always a bad thing)
