Plain Language

Plain Language is defined on the site as --

"Plain language (also called Plain English) is communication your audience can understand the first time they read or hear it. Language that is plain to one set of readers may not be plain to others. Written material is in plain language if your audience can:

  • Find what they need;
  • Understand what they find; and
  • Use what they find to meet their needs.

  ...Plain language is defined by results—it is easy to read, understand, and use."
