What is Sentence Style?

The style of writing refers to the way that sentences are put together, rather than just their content. If you frequently receive comments on papers about "awkward word choice," "wordiness," or "informal language," you may be having trouble refining your writing style. Look at the tips provided on this page (and the included links) for suggestions about improving sentence style. If you want more specific advice, make an appointment with a writing tutor!
