News:   Bunny  Bermuda Is Another World.  Bunny  This Forum, founded in 2007, will be shutting down this year.  We have had a really good run (10 years) and in that time have provided a forum to discuss issues important to all Bermudians.  Bunny  But social media now provides many more avenues to do that, and BIAW has outlived all other forums of its type, and sadly it too must fade into oblivion.  Bunny  Due to hackers known and unknown, in salvaging the forum countless times, I seem to have detached all the previous posts. I could probably recover them from backups but that's more effort than I want to do right now.  Bunny  You can create new topics and post to them, so feel free to post until the last hammer falls.  I'll try to make it our anniversary in October.  Bunny   So, in the immortal words of Douglas Adams...  "So long, and thanks for all the fish!"  Bunny

The Fog Index is a useful tool to analyze your writing to determine how 'educated' one needs to be to understand it:

The Fog Index is a proven method of analyzing written material to see how easy it is to read and understand. The steps you can use to calculate the Fog Index are outlined below. The numbers in the right column are based on this paragraph. When using these steps to analyze your writing, choose a sample that contains at least one hundred words. The "ideal" Fog Index level is Grade 7 or 8. A level above Grade 12 indicates the writing sample may be too challenging for most people to comprehend....

1.    Count the number of words in the sample                           88
2.    Count the number of sentences                                           6
3.    Count the number of big words (3 or more syllables)            6
4.    Calculate the average sentence length. Divide the
            number of sentences into the number of words           88/6 = 14
5.    Calculate the percentage of big words. Divide the
            number of words into the number of big words            6/88 = 7%
6.    Add the avg sentence length to the % of big words          7+14 = 21
7.    Multiply the result by .4    21 x .4 =

    Fog Index    8.4

Do or do not. There is no try.
