Chapter 10: Parallel Structure p.308 – 311  Requires that sentence elements that are alike in function be alike in grammatical from as well.  Parallel structure clarifies meaning, expresses the quality of ideas, and achieves emphasis. Allows readers to anticipate meaning.  Parallel structure can be used with words, phrases, or clauses.  Correlative conjunctions like either, or, neither, nor, not only, and many more should always be used to join elements using parallel structure.  For parallel structure to be effective be sure to repeat articles, pronouns, a helping verb, and a preposition.  Parallel structure is very important when making list, outlines, table of contents and headings. Faulty Parallelism  Results when joined elements are intended to serve equal grammatical functions but however do not have equal grammatical form. Occurs mostly when writers try to compare things that aren’t comparable. Chapter 7: List p.222-223  Vertically stacked list of words, phrases, using bullets, numbers, or alphabets.  Saves the reader time by having everything pointed out already.  Capitalize the first word in each bullet point.  Don’t use commas or semicolons.  Use logical order when bulleting points.  When list uses subdivisions use letters and numbers.  List only items that compare.  Begin list item the same way be consistent.  Do not overuse list or overload content.

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."
