外国地道的文章看上去很“通顺”,而自己写什么样的文章才能够”通顺“?
也就是什么样的句子才不是"poorly structured"?希望知道大家都哪些这样的经验和建议。这个问题很大,先说说自己的看法把:)
(1)标点正确
(2)拼写正确
(3)用词准确(宁缺勿滥)宁愿用一个自己有把握的词(知道确定的用法),也不用不熟悉的同义词。
(4)重视连词的准确.
(5)学会用介词或分词调配句子关系
(6)学会把表达的信息‘有技巧’的部署在一个句子中。

上面6点是我的一些看法,本人阅读不多,经验有限,所以’料‘不多,请大家对技巧进行补充。


================================================================
To native speakers:
How could we write as well as a native speaker?  or at least avoid "poorly structured"?  Here's my personal opinions.
(1)right punctuations
(2)right spellings
(3)proper word choosing: use a word you know well instead of one you're not
(4)make your sentence display your logic
(5)intelligently insert your information in your sentence
What's your opinions,advice, or skills to recommend?

BTW: a good way to improve writing skill is to write.

Write in short simple English for easy immediate understanding without big bombastic words!!!
Finish important sentences in FEW words if possible.

Practise makes Perfect.

I agree! A good sentence can be understood once I look through without reading twice, on the contrary a poor sentence has to be reread and cost more time,

write simple sentences.

Practice writing short sentences.  

Make your sentences clear.

Write each idea as a single sentence.

One action uses one sentence.

You don't need to run a bunch of ideas together in every sentence while adding descriptions and questions and even more good ideas onto the ends of the string of verbs and adjectives you have so overwhelmingly belaboured at the start of your poor, badly treated, sentence.

Complexity is not always needed.

If you write clearly, people can understand you easily.

As you get more practice at simple sentences, you will become a better comunicator.

As you become better, more complex ideas will be easier to express.

Take Heart!

Write Simply!

You will grow into it!

还是 coolmax 的那个建议:平时大量阅读,写文章之前先读类似的英语文章。
