Question:

When writing a paper, what is the best way to find a synonym to replace a word?

Inactive
Rachel B.
Answer:

Use a thesaurus, but make sure you know the meaning of your word as well as the part of speech it belongs to. (For example, "better" can be an adjective, adverb, noun and verb!). Also, make sure you know the meaning of both the word you are looking up and the word you choose to replace it. Your choice can make the difference between a more effective phrase, and a phrase so far from your intended meaning that your readers completely miss your point. For example, you wouldn't replace the phrase "better essay" with "more desirable essay"!

Question:

When you are writing a paper, should you write the introduction first or the body of the paper?

Answer:

My tip would be to write the body of your paper first, or at least make a strong outline. If you write your introduction first, you will have to tailor the body of your paper to your introduction, rather than the other way around. If you know exactly what you're going to say in the body of your paper, you will find it's much easier and more efficient to create an introduction that leads smoothly into the rest of the paper.

Question:

How can you edit this sentence to be less wordy, more grammatically correct and more precise in the description? "It is a fact that all educational courses were stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic situation around the world, nonetheless schoolwork was still able to be done online."

Answer:

This sentence is often repetitive, has unnecessary phrases and words, and is written in the passive voice. It is also a run-on sentence. Some words could be more exact and descriptive. Here is a rewritten version: "All educational institutions in Ontario closed because of the global coronavirus pandemic; nonetheless, students could still take courses online."
