Communicate Bedar Part 2: Fewer Pronouns

by Chance Smith

All credit goes to William Donnell. We both talked about projects, and William quickly noted I was using too many pronouns. I discussed many people at once, and it was easier to say the pronouns than everyone’s name.

Prime example when I was talking with our second son today:

Carter, go tell Mason it’s time for dinner. He then came to dinner.

Who is the he in that sentence?

The point is

When discussing many people, beware of messing up the story for everyone else by using too many pronouns.
