Parallel structure, also known as parallelism, is a grammatical and rhetorical device in which parts of a sentence or a series of sentences are grammatically similar in construction, sound, meaning, or meter. This technique creates balance and symmetry within the text, making it easier to read and understand while emphasizing relationships between ideas. In simpler terms, parallel structure involves making sure that items in a list or components of a sentence are phrased in a consistent grammatical form. This consistency enhances clarity and cohesion in writing. Here's an example of a sentence without parallel structure: "I enjoy reading, hiking, and to play tennis." To improve parallelism, we should ensure that each element in the list follows the same grammatical pattern: "I enjoy reading, hiking, and playing tennis." Now, all three activities (reading, hiking, and playing tennis) are presented in the same grammatical form (gerunds - "-ing" form of the verb), creating parallel structure. Parallel structure is not limited to lists; it can also apply to comparisons, contrasts, and other grammatical structures within a sentence or paragraph. Maintaining parallelism helps to maintain consistency, clarity, and rhythm in writing, contributing to effective communication.
