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.

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. ]
