English Grammar and Style: Revising medical writing Reasons not rules: Backtracking, pronoun-induced Part 3 - Double syntactic unit revision and syntactic position revision

Abstract

This is the last of this series of three articles on pronouns that cause distraction by making the reader backtrack. In the first part of this article, we examine a technique for eliminating backtracking by making two changes to the construction of the sentence. The technique is to eliminate the pronoun that is causing the distraction by sentence syntax reduction.
