Delete three glue words from each of the following sentences.
'Glue' words hold together 'working' words (nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs). Some examples of glue words are: the, it, that, and, of, a, but, as, while, because, though, unless, where.
Glue words are useful, but many writers use too many. Sentences with minimal glue words are more concise and convey their meaning quickly.
Minimising glue words may require re-writing, but sometimes you can simply
delete extra words from a sentence.
