Writing Style Analysis of Professional Journals
Analysing the style of writing of professional journals is a systematic process. It entails taking into consideration the types of sentences used in the article journals, the wording of the articles as well as the use of punctuations. Besides the language aspects of a journal, the article has to be evaluated based on the layout of presentation in terms of headings and titles to guide the reader in understanding the article. The presentation of the article is also made more appealing when the flow of ideas is smooth and well integrated as directed by the headings. The analysis of style in this instance will focus on the article, “Adventure_: Write it Down by Patrick Gill.”
Titles and headings
The analysis of this article begins with observing the use of headings and titles in the article. This article begins with a statement of dedication of the article to the intended audience, “For Santa Cruz and all those who escaped and all those who continue to revel in it.” (Gill). This article does not utilize headings and titles indicating that it is a story tackling one topic all through. The lack of headings and titles can also be an indication that the article has a flow of ideas that do not need to be separated for the audience to understand.
Sentence length and type
The article written by Gill uses simple sentence structure to convey the message intended. The sentences may be long but not complicated in structure. “If it was written it was by and on our own tongues, o be catalogued you know, when you had time; in the future you had time because in the moment you were too busy doing everything.” This sentence structure is crafted expertly to pass a message. It is not a short and simple sentence but the use of the punctuations and words make it appear well thought out. The sentences used in this story are well written and enhance the connection of the narrative to the audience.
The article by Gill uses simple words to express the narrator’s thoughts. The words are used creatively to make sure that the reader is captivated by the story from the first line to the last. The words used also enhance the ability of the reader to remember the content of the story. The ability by the author to put together a tory and express it in a way that the audience does not struggle to make sense of it is often justified by the use of words to convey the intended message. The words are also selected carefully and are relevant to the narration.
The punctuations are an important part of the English language and any language. The ability of the authors to ensure that they can use punctuations correctly is considered a skill. Writing without punctuations makes no sense. In this article therefore, Gill uses punctuations to enhance the quality of the writing. For instance; “Pile on the steak cut fires, the mint chip shakes, the metal mixing in on tapes (my wagon could only play tapes) with the Velvet Underground, with the shins, with Billie’s “Gloomy Sunday” and the Blood Brother’s Love Rhymes with “Hideous Car Wreck.”” (Gill, 131). This sentence has used many punctuations to ensure that, however long it is, it can be under stood. The brackets have been used to include additional information mid-sentence. There are quotation marks to mark a statement that is the title of something the author wishes to talk about. The correct use of full stops, comas, and semi-colons along with hyphens have been used as well to make the narration more memorable to the audience.
The writing style used by Gill in his article is unique and resonates well creative pieces of writing. The use of punctuations correctly, good sentence structures supported by an expert selection of words make the article a professional piece of writing. Further, deliberate failure to use headings makes the audience read through the article uninterrupted. When crafting a creative piece of writing or narrating a real life story, words, sentences and punctuations are the only weapons an author has to make an impact to the audience that will come across their writing.
