The Charter 77 Composition Group presents its case for putting the idea of normal prose at the center of composition courses and writing instruction. We define normal prose as prose characterized by the not infrequent use of appositives and participial phrases set off by commas, and by broken main clauses. We reject the idea that syntactical maturity and sentence variety are fostered by labelling sentences as simple, complex, compound, and compound-complex.
