Logically Flowing Sentences

One way to achieve logical flow within a paragraph is to link each sentence to the following sentence by including common information. This sort of sequencing creates clear, logical text. In fact, text constructed in this manner has been shown to be significantly easier to follow and learn from (Britton and Gulgoz, 1991).

Text should be constructed so that new information in a sentence (i.e. information presented towards the end of the sentence) is presented as given information in the following sentence or sentences (i.e. information presented at the beginning of the sentence).

For example,


Door Another example of logically flowing sentences. The new information in a sentence is presented as the information given at the beginning of the next sentence (see italics).
