Free Infographic: In Plain English, Please! Part 2

When readers must pause to understand a difficult or ambiguous word in your text, they are more likely to skip the sentence or quit reading. It's fine to use long words sparingly, but packing too many long words in a sentence creates confusion and chaos for the average reader. Although long words on their own are easy to grasp, you should favor simpler, everyday words to improve your document's clarity and readability.

In Part 2 of "In Plain English, Please!" I have provided another fifty-four plain English words that you can use to make your writing easier to read. I will have Part 3 ready next week. Feel free to use and distribute this infographic any way you wish.
