In the world today our language is a wonderful source of communication, but the only downfall is that it is nowhere near close to perfect. It is always much nicer to hear someone who has clear and precise language coming out of their mouth instead of jumbled mumbling words.
Speaking in Short
- First I would like to talk about the scope. Is your response actually what you need to talk about? Or are you trying to beat around the bush and not get to the point of your conversation? If the scope is too wide or broad it may hide the subject or delay the action. Make sure your audience knows what they want to do and ask yourself if you have said everything that they need to know or respond to take the correction action.
- Keep your audience’s attention by not changing terms. For example if you call a box, a box at the beginning do not change the card, unless there is a reason to change it. If there is a reason for this change you need to explain it to your audience so they know what is going on.
- Remember to have a passive voice. Do you tend to overkill your verbs? Remember to talk to your audience instead of about your audience. Voice is very important when trying to relay a message across to a group of people.
- Do not forget about conjunctions. Conjunctions are a good form for blocking run on sentences as a preposition. Conjunctions may also capture topics that are not related and fill empty spots we have to take a breath. They also may take up a spot if your audience may need a breather as well. Conjunctions are very important when relaying your message smoothly.
- Last but not least one of the most important are prepositions. Prepositions are the main source in our language for run-on sentences. Most likely, positions do not have any point to your message at all and when you do use a preposition make sure that it is necessary.
Speaking in short helps immensely in delivering what you want to say and helps the receiver to understand the message more precisely.
