Dense Academic Writing
Why, you ask, oh hypothetical person who cares?
Let me share with you this sentence that I wrote last night:
To determine whether a priming effect occurred with this administration, I compared the mean “post test” scores (I2 and E2) for the internal and external axes for each variation of the CPS with the corresponding scores for the variants that omitted the first page of inventory questions. For example, I compared the mean score of CPS-D:I2 with CPS-D1:I2, as well as the mean score of CPS-D:E2 with CPS-D1:E2.
And I'm in the social sciences. LOL!
(Yes, that actually means something. And I actually know what that something is... but it hurts my head keeping track, so your patience is appreciated.)
