About Literary Editing Project (LEP) Posts

LEP Posts entail the educational editing process-method offered through McIntoshLinguistics.

Like The LEP, LEP Posts can help you construct highly readable and semantically sound literary manuscripts. They both entail the same process-method that addresses a grammatical approach we like to refer to as SSORE: syntax and semantics, orthography and readability elements or The SSORE of Writing & Editing.

The elements of SSORE encompass the three distinct subject matters of The LEP:

  1. Syntax & Semantics
  2. Orthography
  3. Readability Elements

The goal of the LEP Posts is to provide quick access to some of the most integral operatives (words, phrases, clauses and punctuation) involved in constructing a highly readable and semantically sound literary manuscript. Interested users will be offered unique editing solutions in post format, which will fall under any of the above subject matters of The LEP.
