Thanks again you guys - sorry for the initial roughness of my first stream!
Again though, I want to acknowledge that this varies upon the context of your paper.
Grammarly is very helpful most of the time, but thesis statements lie in a grey area in my opinion on length. I think they serve as an exception because good theses are often beefy, but you also want to make sure that you are being clear and that every idea you bring up has a point to it. Avoid being too wordy - but I would not operate under the assumption that theses should be short.
Hi everyone! Thank you for tuning in. Tom, linking verbs often weaken your thesis because they do not invoke or express action, but rather serve to connect ideas and phrases.
Should I make a sentence quite long? I'm a Grammarly user, and sometimes it will remind me that a sentence that I wrote is too long and maybe hard to read.
Thanks for the helpful stream!
My instructor says to avoid linking verbs in the thesis statement. Do you know why this is?
What are some examples of good thesis' we can learn about?
Hey Julia! Thesis statements are pretty difficult, thanks for helping!
