The writing of the dissertation corresponds to a stage of sufficient the maturing of knowledge and reflection on the subject.

There is no single way to undertake this phase. There are those who only begin to write when the subject is clear; others refine the reflection with the writing process itself. Some begin at the beginning, trying almost definitive formulations; others progress through decisive improvements, not always corresponding to the final order of the themes.

Also the style is, of course, personal.

In any case, there are rules that should be followed. Some of the most general and important ones are formulated.

The first qualities of technical language are its precision, clarity and economy: the redundancy of the expression is a defect, as is the excessive adjectivation, the reiteration of ideas, the equivocation, the obscure references to the normally informed reader. The superfluous extension of a text, as if the (long) dimension counted, is a defect. As is the search for purely literary effects or use of sentences without informative content. Almost all this shows up well in a second reading, in which, as a stranger, we asked ourselves about the precise meaning and usefulness of each of our sentences. A healthy exercise is to try to reduce, without significant loss of meaning, our previous texts. Writing too much, by itself, is much more a defect than a quality.

With increasing frequency, Schools set characters or words for dissertations. Contrary to what many think, this is a good, on the condition that in choosing the theme and in making its first scheme of development, this has been taken into account, as it must be. Word processors today perform this counting work in all simplicity. The most common ones allow even to include, at the beginning of the text, a variable with the results of the counts, variable that can be periodically updated.

Linguistic correction is an element of clarity; but it is also an important sign of culture and good habits of reading and writing. Linguistic correction includes good use of grammar (including the use of verbal modes and tenses, consistency in its use, syntax rules, verbal propositional rulings, punctuation standards, etc.) and officially established spelling . Good knowledge of the language avoids the use of unnecessary foreignisms, even if they are idioms; andthis still reveals a healthy immunity to common sense and provincialism.

The aesthetic qualities of the text value it; but in this kind of literature, play a subordinate role, although – on this plane – very meritorious. Fleeing from the commonplace, from the phrases phased out, from an infatuated and often ugly “vulgarity”, from vulgarity, from excessive colloquialism, from cultism and preciousness, from purposeful or avoidable complexity, are ways of making texts more beautiful, less predictable and therefore more stimulating. A well-dosed tip of rhetoric in the construction of discourse may also help.
