Book Information

Book Description

The LEP in combination with MCINTOSHFORMS™ helps you analyze/review your literary manuscript through the lens of syntax and semantics, shape and readability elements. It identifies some of the most integral operatives (words, phrases, clauses and punctuation) involved in constructing a highly readable and semantically sound literary manuscript. While The LEP focuses on the editing process, it also reinforces the importance of the writer’s taking it upon himself or herself to study every nuance and aspect of English, should he or she want to be further empowered to tell stories that delve into the very psychology of its characters, milieu, and narrative devices.

The LEP is divided into three distinct subject matters:

  1. Syntax & Semantics (sentence arrangement, morphology)
  2. Orthography (writing conventions, i.e., punctuation)
  3. Readability Elements (clarity)
