Question:

What is the importance or usefulness of word choice in composition?

Adriana C.
Answer:

Word choice is important because it gives the writer an opportunity to influence the reader's perception in a subtle, but meaningful, way. The author can create more nuanced imagery, or imply a specific undertone based on the connotations of their word choice. For example, compare the following: "He seated himself on the couch" "He plopped himself on the couch." "Seated" has the connotation of something orderly, purposeful and careful. "Plopped" on the other hand, paints a picture of a person or scenario that is sloppy, lazy or informal.
