Looking good.
You're almost at the limit.
That's it. No more words.

20 Limit helps you write concise sentences by limiting your word count to 20.

The limitation is only a suggestion.

20 Limit does not record or save content.

The Oxford Guide to Plain English recommends a sentence length of between 15 and 20 words.

"One reason for keeping to a 15-20 word average is that people are used to it," it states.

The guide references a 1960's study, which found the average sentence length to be 19 words.

While we've progressed since then, concise writing remains important.
