What Is Style?

Style refers to the characteristics of a person’s writing. Some writers are relaxed, natural, and friendly. We get the sense of their personality from their writing. Their letters and memos are clear and easy to read. Other writers are stiff, phony, or cold. These messages seem to have been written by robots, not human beings. Some writers seem to be “putting on airs,” trying to impress us with a foggy cloud of words that don’t convey any clear meaning.
