User: Define formal writing

Weegy: It is the style of writing, or the way we use words to say what we want to say. Different situations call for different ways of putting words together. [ The way we write in academic and scientific settings differs greatly from the way we write to a friend or close one. The tone, vocabulary, and syntax, all change as the occasion changes. This difference in the styles of writing is the difference between formality and informality, or the difference between formal and informal writing. Following is a list of some of the main differences between informal and formal writing: Informal: May use colloquial words/expressions (kids, guy, awesome, a lot, etc.) Formal: Avoid using colloquial words/expressions (substitute with children, man/boy, wonderful, many, etc.) Informal: May use contractions (can't, won't, shouldn't, etc.). Formal: Avoid contractions (write out full words - cannot, will not, should not, etc.). Informal: May use first, second, or third person. Formal: Write in third person (except in business letters where first person may be used). Informal: May use clich?s (loads of, conspicuous by absence, etc.) Formal: Avoid clich?s (use many, was absent, etc.) Informal: May address readers using second person pronouns (you, your, etc) Formal: Avoid addressing readers using second person pronouns (use one, one's, the reader, the reader's, etc.) Informal: May use abbreviated words (photo, TV, etc) Formal: Avoid using abbreviated words (use full versions - like photograph, television, etc.) Informal: May use imperative voice (e.g. Remember....) Formal: Avoid imperative voice (use Please refer to.....) Informal: May use active voice (e.g. We have notice that.....) Formal: Use passive voice (e.g. ]
