ENGLISH FOR SOCIAL PURPOSES-example sentences

COMMUNICATION FOR ALL PURPOSES AND SEASONS - Example sentences


“Bharat is usually happy, full of high spirits and loves to be with people”.

This sentence can be expressed briefly but effectively with a single but appropriate vocabulary of description.

“Bharat is a gregarious boy”, (description of attitude)

Here are a few more examples:
e.g 1: The policeman has a thick mustache which covers and droops along his upper lip, but curves up ward on either side of his mouth.

“The policeman sports a handle-bar mustache.” (description of appearance)

e.g. 2: The jockey wears pants which are broad and cut full at the thighs and light from the knee to the ankle with a strap around the foot.
“The jockey wears riding breeches /jodhpurs”. (description of clothes)

e.g. 3 : As it was raining very heavily there was a lot of water flowing along all the streets in the city.
“Due to torrential rains the city streets were flooded”. (description of weather conditions)

e.g. 4: Jessie wore a long white dress and had a veil on her head on her wedding day.
“Jessie wore the customary bridal attire on her wedding day” (description of clothes)

You would have by now understood that it is not the number of words but their accuracy and appropriacy that makes effective communication.
