Sentence Fluency:


Getting Started

Sentence Fluency is the rhythm and flow of the language, the sound of word patterns, and the way in which the writing plays to the ear, not just to the eye.


Sentence fluency helps make writing interesting. It is a trait that allows writers to add a lot of depth to their writing. By changing sentence length and where words are placed next to each other in a sentence, writers are able to help guide the reader through their work.
