Where do you find good drafters?

  1. On your first point, I don’t read “not definitive” as a criticism. To me, it says, there are alternative, respectable solutions to the identified problem [and Ken’s is a good one for the reasons he has indicated; but by saying I support his work it doesn’t imply that I will always choose his solution or that I need to].

    Your favourites are also my favourites.

    I agree about semantic acuity, though it leads me on to consider whether this quality is inherent in some people or can be taught – nature or nurture. I hope that one of the things I teach my trainees is to look critically at every word of a sentence. As for testing for it, this may be part of school tests on comprehension and spelling, which were my two favourite subjects; I have no idea whether these subjects are still taught and tested.
