    Significant Wellsprings Of Auxiliary Information For Your Examination Paper
     
    One of the hardest parts of writing is to cut down the words written in the draft that has to be restricted to a certain word limit. The process can be even more stressful if the deadline to submit the assignment is very short. Good content cannot be produced in just a couple of hours before the deadline. When the time is short, you can look for shortcuts to reduce the word count in the document. An essay writer can help you in reducing the word count in the document but he or she may not know which is the most important part of the essay.
     
     
    In the following lines, we will take a look on a few simple techniques that can be used to reduce the word count to the desired limit.
     
    Delete “The”
             You can delete the word “The” from your text and keep the meanings of the text.
    Examples
    Original: The quality of the essay is dependent on the content and the flow
    The quality of your essay depends on both content and flow
     
    Delete “That”
             The word “that” is also often frequently used in the essay and it can be easily deleted without changing the meaning.
    Examples
    Original: We concluded that cells that show the mutated protein can migrate across the barriers quicker than other types of cells.
    We concluded cells showing mutated proteins moved across the barriers faster than other types.
     
     
    Removing adjectives and adverbs
             Adverbs change verbs whereas adjectives modify nouns. Choosing better words will mean that you do not need modifying words. The undue use of adverbs and adjectives will weaken the stronger nouns and verbs. Omitting adjectives and adverbs will make your writing stronger and concise. 
     
    Examples 
    Original: The whole procedure lasted over four days and the drug greatly altered the patients’ health.
    The treatment went on for four days and the drug improve the condition of patients
     
     
    Using shorter words
             There is a temptation to use longer words in places where shorter words can suffice. Using shorter words will reduce the characters in the writing and will communicate better meanings to the readers.
    Examples
    Original: The researchers investigated whether utilizing a particular drug will facilitate the patients more than the other.
    The researchers studied whether using one drug will help the patients more than the other.
     
     
    Trimming wordy phrases
             Many needless words can be deleted so that lengthy phrases can be shortened. This will also clear out all the clutter in your writing.
    Examples
    Original: During the course of the semester, the majority of the equipment was damaged in response to careless handling.
    During the semester, most equipment was damaged due to careless handling
     
     
    Use active voice
             Active voice can be written by using fewer words as compared to the passive voice. Active voice also results in clearer writing. It is a compelling way of writing and helps the writer to tell a powerful story.
    Examples
    Passive: The samples were used by the researcher
    Active: The researcher used the samples.
     
     
    Remove the needless transitions
    Original: Indeed, we found that the mutated protein was dangerous for heart patients
    Revised: We found that the mutated protein was dangerous for heart patients
     
     
    Remove conjunctions       
             Conjunctions are used to connect two independent statements. These statements can be written as separate sentences.
    Examples
    Original: Patients taking drug A did not show any symptoms for three days, and patients treated with drug B did not show any symptoms for seven days.
    Revised: Patients treated with drug A did not show any symptoms for three days. Patients treated with drug B did not show any symptoms for seven days.
     
     
    Rephrasing running starts
             Sometimes writers give a direct start to sentences by using phrases such as “there are” or “the fact that”. These phrases can be rephrased to make the writing more direct and shorten the text at the same time.
    Examples:
    Original: It has been concluded that the cells move faster when they are treated with a certain drug.
    Revised: The cells move faster when treated by the drug.
     
     
    Tackle paragraphs with widows and orphans
             When working with word limits, a good way is to attack the paragraphs containing dangling words that are also called widows and orphans. A widow is an alone word or a phrase that appears at the end of a page or a paragraph. An orphan is a word that is written at the top or start of the page. You should look for parts having just a few words in the end and assess how they can be removed to make some extra space.
     
     
     
     
             Several times, students cannot limit themselves to the given word count. The above guidelines will help the writer in keeping within the word count. However, it is important to proofread the document to see that any essential information is not left behind.
