Before reading, make sure your read my previous one on: Writing – The Why And The Essence

What Is Meant By “Writing Good English” ?

The meaning of ‘good English‘, and hence writing good English, may vary from people to people around the world since we come from different backgrounds and due to the nature of our education. Despite the fact that there is no governing bodies of linguists to gauge its exact meaning, we do have a standard set by the authorities indulged in linguistics. Hence, sensible authors, careful writers and educated people using English language as their medium of writing, try to conform to these standards as closely as they can. These standards may be grammatical rules, language structure, and universally accepted words, idioms or metaphors.

English Language, IMHO The Best

There are so many languages nowadays which can be used, but the English language is the most widely used world-wide. In my humble opinion, English language includes and transcends all subjects. It is for English writers and lovers a whole means of expression, the attainment of which makes them articulate and intelligible human beings, able to inherit the past, to possess the present and to confront the future. The ability to write good English is simply an art for them.

My Own Experience With Writing – Good English A Myth?

I was not so fluent or good at writing English in my early days of school. I was always favouring French, the second official language of my country – Mauritius. There were some personal reasons which I will not elaborate right now to keep on the subject title. But one main reason was that I was always scoring an ‘A’ in all my French classes despite the fact that I was never doing any French essays or practising it. This fact was initially a mystery to me because I was always trying my best to write good English and was never successful in getting good results. Then, I finally remembered that I was frequently reading some 1 or 2 pages of French books every day. Yeah I mean it, I loved the famous French book – ‘Les Six Compagnons de la Croix Rousse, by Jean Jacques Bonzo’ and this made reading French more than a hobby. I was reading in my free periods, sometimes during recess, in the bus and at night just to finish all its series. Like this, my hunger for French adventure books became a craze. But in this process, I was unaware that while reading so much, French words seemed to have become hackneyed phrases. That is why my friends used to tell me: “man, where do you fetch all these nice French wordings?”. In other words, what I want to emphasise here is that if you keep reading and looking at English/French words or a small sentence everyday for at least some 30 minutes per day, you will end up with these words embedded in your mind without knowing. And when you will start to write English, you will be amazed to see your mind popping out nice words; that’s how you will progress to write good English!

The Secret Of Writing Good English

While reading you should build up a personal ‘database‘ of special words or phrases. Get a small copy book and list down all striking and unknown words to you. Therefore, be regular in breeding a medley of nice words in your special ‘note-book‘. Those precious words are your key to write good English.

Now, does this mean that you should read everyday? Not really, but you should definitely read your smorgasbord of words in your note-book everyday! I strongly believe that there are 2 kinds of people – one who read very very often, if not everyday, to master the language (as i did unknowingly for the French language) and the second person who read little, but nurturing a high mastery of the basics and techniques of the English language (this one was my conscious experience with English).
But here, the key tricks are:
1) Each time and every single time you read, you should keep growing your ‘database’ of words. Keep looking for new prominent words.
2) Make the English dictionary be your bosom English friend – never keep a word in your book without finding and writing down it’s meaning. Else, do not bother about even writing it down – trust me!
3) You should pinpoint good critical articles/books, think about what you are reading and in this process be generous to yourself by taking notes conscientiously of new golden words. This is because you are reading rarely and hence you should make those rare readings worth 10 times the ones that you would read everyday. So you have to be very selective and analytical in what you will read.
4) Now that you have a copy-book full of defined words, don’t just sit around and smile at it. Go and put them into practice. Start by writing good sentences with these words and write some essays. Writing here is pivotal. Just like a car cannot run without a battery, you cannot expect to have a fluent English if you do not write English. (the battery being your skill in writing and your car the knowledge of the language and wordings)

Support Your Effort To Write Good English With Observation

Going further in our approach, while reading decent articles, you should see how Mr X is using his words in his articles and how he constructs his sentences. Then, with your analytical and critical reading, coupled with your observation and some personal insights, you should try to emulate the fresh expressiveness of Mr X. How to do this, you say? Go and try to write a good English sentence where you can use those words better than Mr X. You will once again be amazed at yourself at how well you performed and you will even be seeing yourself gaining momentum and hence writing good English paragraphs. Go reward yourself after your hard work, you deserve it!

=> I sincerely hope this article on ‘how to write good English‘ and my effort to explain it to you, has been fruitful for you. If you do like I explain, there is no excuse in not being able to produce good quality English writings. And I wish you all the best

What’s Next Concerning Writing Good?

As I said in my ‘About section’, my aim is to make you say ‘Wonderful‘ by bringing decent piece of work written by me. So, keep supporting Wakish Wonderz and keep being around. My next article is on ‘GP Essays – how to write General Paper essays‘. This is particular targeted to students taking part in HSC Cambridge students as an addition to this article on ‘How to write good English’. But no wonder, all these articles on Writing – The Why And The Essence is a must and worth-while reading for everyone, since learning is an ever on-going process.

Before ending, I will sincerely advise you to buy or get a copy of this book below. This book was prescribed to me by my English/GP Guru and I should say that I salutes my Guru for this book, it’s a treasure to me!(You will indeed come back and thank me for having shown you this book!)

    How to write English
    Remember to never split an infinitive. The passive voice should never be used. Do not put statements in the negative form. Don’t use contractions in formal writing, and don’t use no double negatives. It is incumbent on one to avoid archaisms. Proofread carefully to see if you words out or incorect speling. It has come to our considered attention that in a large majority of cases, far too many people use a great deal more words than is absolutely necessary when engaged in the practice of writing sentences. If you reread your work, you can find on rereading a great deal of redundant repetition can be removed and eliminated by rereading and editing.
    A writer must not shift your point of view. If the writer is considerate of the reader, he won’t have a problem with ambiguous sentences. Don’t write a run-on sentence its hard to read you must punctuate it. If a dependent clause precedes an independent clause put a comma after the dependent clause. But avoid commas, that are not necessary, and don’t overuse exclamation marks!!! Use the semicolon properly, always use it where it is appropriate; and never where it isn’t. Reserve the apostrophe for it’s proper use and omit it when its not needed. In statements involving two word phrases, make an all out effort to use hyphens, but make sure you hyp- henate properly.

    Take the bull by the hand and avoid mixing metaphors. Always pick on the correct idiom. Avoid colloquial stuff, and trendy locutions that sound flaky. Also, avoid all awkward or affected alliteration. Unqualified superlatives are the worst of all. Beware of and eschew pompous prolixity, and avoid the utilization of enlarged words when shortened ones will do. Avoidification of neologisms strengthenifies your prosification. Avoid using sesquipedalian words. It is not resultful to transform one part of speech into another by prefixing, suffixing, or other alterings. Perform a functional iterative analysis on your work to root out third generation transitional buzz words. Steer clear of incorrect forms of verbs that have snuck into the language. The de facto use of foreign phrases vis-a-vis plain English in your written tete-a-tetes makes the sentence harder to understand.

    Everyone should be careful to use a singular pronoun with singular nouns in their writing. Place pronouns as close as possible, especially in long sentences, as of 10 or more words, to their antecedents. Writing carefully, dangling participles must be avoided. If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is. Write all adverbial forms correct. Verbs has to agree with their subjects, and the adverb always follows the verb. This sentence no verb. Which is not a complete sentence, but merely a subordinate clause. A preposition is something you should never end a sentence with. And don’t start a sentence with a conjunction.

    Last but not least, avoid dyed-in-the-wool cliches like the plague; seek viable alternatives.

    Hi Rock,
    no your sentences are not good. There are 2 mistakes:

    MISTAKE 1
    1) The word “spore” is a noun and you are using it an adjective in your two sentences which is not good.
    2) The meaning of the word ‘spore’ does not fit your sentences at all. I think you have wrongly interpreted what you wanted.

    MISTAKE 2:
    You should say “i did return” instead of “i did returned” without the ‘ed’. This is because the verb ‘did’ which is in the past tense and hence the verb after it should be in normal form

    Solution:
    => Just tell me what exactly you wanted to convey and I will find the right adjective or word for you..

    Cheers!

    @Terab:

    If you don’t find me replying fast, this means I’m busy in real life at the moment. But I will surely get back to you as soon as I can.

    About your 2nd question:

    1) Whatever your level of english you need to keep the advice that I first gave into practice. You need to build and strengthen your words, idioms, expressions further.

    2) Writing a novel is very different from writing an essay or for a journal. Each type of writing has their own style, format, standard and rules. So you need to make your own research on the specific writing that you want, in your case i think it’s a novel. So read as much as you can on the styles, requirements and standards of novel writing.

    3) Observe existing work of established novelist and try to adapt your own style from there.

    4) Last but not the least, you need to keep reading and observing a lot if you want to become a good writer.

    Thanks for your comments and feedback!

    Hi Wakish, thanks for putting up those useful tips. I am currently taking course in English and English is not my first languague. In this course, it requires a lot of essay writings. And I have been trying very hard to read often and listen often and write often, but the improvement is still very limited. I really want to be a good writer. I think I am at a stage where I do not know how to help myself to improve. Do you mind if you could browse through my essay and point out my problem and tell me what I should do in order to be a good writer?
