Add Clarity to Your Writing
By Annette Rey
Parallelism is easy to explain and to apply.
The opening sentence is an example of parallelism. Notice to appears twice in the sentence. That is parallelism.
The sentence could also have been written as:
- Parallelism is easy to explain and apply.
The word to must either go ONLY before the first verb in the list or before each verb in the sentence.
- The boys plan to hike, track animals, and camp out.
- The boys plan to hike, to track animals, and to camp out.
Have fun writing and be clear in your meaning.
