Using language affectively

This is a wonderful little article reminding us that language is something we all use but may not use properly or with as much clarity and sophistication as we perhaps ought to. Take the time to read through it; it is well worth your time. I particularly enjoyed this paragraph,

There are many books on communication, and how intimately it is related to one’s relationships with friends, family, co-workers, etc. Precise and honest communication allows for fewer “unknowns” between the speaker and the listener. As the level of “unknowns” decreases, the personal connection between the two becomes stronger. Strong communication leads to strong and trusting relationships.

Take a read and consider the importance of clear communication and how you can improve your own clarity of expression. Seriously, it is a really, really, really, really good article (inside joke).

[Bonus marks for those who noticed the typo in my article before reading this sentence alluding to the typo.]
