  • Secrets of Syntax – April 6, 2019 with Frances Peck
    • We’ve all flipped a sentence around, or dismantled it and then recombined it, only to find that suddenly it comes to life. Why does that happen? How can we become more adept at manipulating word order—or syntax—to boost clarity, emphasis, and rhythm? This seminar looks at syntax from various angles, including how to shape it for different genres and readers. Topics covered include subordination and coordination, periodic versus cumulative sentences, proximity of subject and verb, echo words, and special techniques such as ellipsis and isolation.
