Yes, that's one easy way to make something easier to understand. It also has the benefit of increasing the number of people who will read it.Originally Posted by Joan Kennedy
You're right about that index; the best way to bring the index number down is to chop down the text into shorter sentences. I've used it when writing for specific reading levels. Before getting to know it in MS Word, I thought the biggest barrier to readability would be use of low-frequency "high vocabulary" words.
