Tactic Four Parallel Construction

Adhering to the principles of parallel construction facilitates readers' comprehension of your messages, reduces your writing and revision effort, creates a pleasing rhythm to the writing, and adds professionalism to your communications. You should adhere to the decisions you make consistently throughout a document, and often throughout all of the documents produced within an organization.

Some examples of parallel construction issues are:

• grammatical constructions

• titles, names, and honorifics

• sentence or clause structure within a bulleted or numbered list

• modifying phrases

• punctuation styles

• nouns and pronouns
