The Structure Of Language
Language is more than just a tool of communication; it is a profound way of expression. Effective language sounds fluid, but has a structure to cling to. A structure doesn’t need to be rigid, but it should form the backbone of your content.
Fluidity is not about the looseness of content and its context. It refers specifically to the ease with which something can be absorbed. Structure shouldn’t hamper its fluidity: it should enhance it. This makes your content more accessible. Language is so diverse that there is an area of study devoted to it: linguistics.
Within linguistics, there are many sections that focus on one element of language. Many of these elements overlap so they work closely together. Phonetics would focus on the individual sounds made in language and phonology would dissect phonemes, the speech sounds of an individual language. These areas would analyze the different sounds humans make.
On the other hand, morphology would analyze the relationships between units of words. Syntax would then focus on the arrangements of a sentence. The combination of the two creates the rules of grammar. These rules form the basis of all languages (though they differ between languages).
Things like semantics (which is the literal meaning of sentences) and pragmatics (which is about the wider context) shows the interpretive side of linguistics. Each element shows a level of expertise and complexity that builds a language. This is why effective communication is not as simple as it might seem.
Before you decide to write or speak, think about the best way to put your message forward.
When we analyze language, we don’t always go into detail. However, if we make more informed choices about what we say and write, our communication becomes much more valuable. Language is much more than just letters randomly arranged. There is order and rule, and this is how we learn to communicate effectively.

Content is supposed to be multi-faceted. They should satisfy three aspects that appeal to the audience, ultimately converging to deliver a message. Each side has an important role to satisfy an audience. First, the best content will resonate emotionally with an audience. It should be able to tap into an experience that connects with them on a human level. Emotions are abstract and unquantifiable, making them hard to measure. There is no definitive way to get someone emotionally involved with your work.Read More
What does good content do? Good content, like all good things, is relative. However, exceptional work comes from creators who understand how to manipulate the audience. This isn’t necessarily with an ulterior motive, but creators have the ability and means to guide their audiences. Knowing this, you should conclude that good content will inspire an audience to do good. Yet, it is so much more than that. The best content maps out a sequence of events that entangles the audience.Read More

Ideas and concepts should not just be keeping a permanent residence in your mind. The desire to create is not as satisfying as the feeling of completion. It takes a lot of honest introspection to look back at your dead projects. While scouring and sifting through the graveyard, pay attention to what you wanted to achieve and your reasons behind it. Better yet, make a list. It is important to pick one project as the main focus.Read More
Sitting down to write just hours before it is due, writing only one draft, and submitting it is not the best practice. Racing against the clock leaves little to no time for revision. Those using this method often say that working fast somehow allows them to overcome writer’s block. Sometimes we work under strict time constraints – that is something to be said of all professions. In some cases, we believe that we can produce good quality work just before the deadline.Read More
Every artist, designer, poet and author is an entrepreneur the moment they start to sell their work. The problem is that most of them don’t know it. In some more perilous situations, they don’t know what to do about it. Most artists think of their work as art, which is fine (and technically correct), but it is also a product. Products are meant to be sold. Proper sales and marketing strategies are key to selling products.Read More
