Jump the gun

Submitted by Jenny on Tue, 07/21/2015 - 11:53

Have you jumped the gun before? Has anyone said that to you before? When you have jumped the gun, it means that you have done something early and prematurely.


A: Cindy looks unhappy this morning.
B: She must not finished her assignments last night.
A; Don't jump the gun to make that conclusion. She might just be tired.


In this example, A is tell B not to make the conclusion too early without understanding entire situation.

What is parallelism?

Sample sentence: I recommend relaxing activities such as reading, watching TV, seeing a movie.

Rewrite:
swimming and running.
Relaxing activities can help people to forget their worries, handle mental pressure, and lower their stress levels.
Many people like relaxing activities because they want to forget their stressful day and because they want to feel relaxed.

Why do we write using this technique?
Using parallelism improves writing style and readability, and makes sentences easier to process.
