I don't want to hear brevity, or the usage of certain grammatical structures. There are words that are clear, though they longer, and though they make use of certain parts of speech. There must be certain rules not pertaining to these things, which when followed, make sure that the words are clear. I have a few ideas. One, the definition of the words must not be obsolete. Two, the grammar of the words must not be ambiguous. Three, the meaning of the words, given by their proper definitions, when taken together, must add up to the meaning, and no other than the meaning, of that which you intended. Four, the elements of the sentence must be syntactically sound. And fifth, the words, according to some rule which is yet undefined to me, must not have a structure that is too complex. I have realized that many times, in aiming for rhythm, I used a word with the wrong meaning, a word that did not signify that which I meant. Now who, when reading words that mean exactly what the author meant, and that are expressed in grammar of reasonable complexity, can fail to understand them? What is your opinion?
