to guide writers into writing clearly and truthfully, Orwell proposed the following six rules:

        1) Never use a metaphor, simile, or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print.

        2) Never use a long word where a short one will do.

         3) If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.

        4) Never use the passive where you can use the active.

         5) Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.
