It’s a terminal case

Oh no!  I suffer from all of these!  Fortunately (or not) I know I’m not alone.  In fact, I just finished reading a book which was such a martyr to this one that I’m going to quote it whole:

Imprecision:  When writers just miss the target ground with their word using they on occasion elicit a type of sentence experiential feeling that creates a backtracking necessity.

From “Do you suffer from one of these Writing maladies?” by Nathan Bransford
