Business Writing

Useful Expressions for Your Business Writing

17. 11. 2014

Sometimes, particularly when you’re under pressure, you may not be able to put your finger on the words you need for the report or letter you are writing. Today’s tip includes some lists to help you out.

Summarising
Remember, a summary is particularly important in a long document. Repeat the points you want people to remember.

  • In a word …
  • In short …
  • On balance …
  • To sum up …

Alternatives
Often you will need to provide different options and describe each of them. You can use:

  • Not only … but also …
  • For one thing … For another …
  • Either … or …
  • Neither … nor … (negative alternative)

Generalising
Sometimes we need to generalise or make broad statements about information, pulling together, for example, principles from a range of cases. To do this you can use:

  • Generally speaking …
  • By and large …
  • All told …
  • All things considered …

Approximating
It’s not always possible to use accurate figures. Sometimes you want to give a ‘ballpark’ figure or estimation.

  • Roughly speaking
  • About
  • Around
