form using the principle of parallelism. Beatitudes are a prime example of parallel construction. Objective: What is expressing coordinate ideas in similar form? Examples Expressing coordinate ideas in similar form can also be known as parallel
construction or parallelism. Parallelism is the use of matching grammatical
elements such as words, phrases, clauses, and sentence structures to express
ideas. Effective parallelism adds balance to your writing. Parallelism contributes
to your writing by making items parallel in meaning and parallel in structure. Parallel elements appear in lists or series, in compounds, in comparisons, and in contrasting elements. Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled.

It is true that in repeating a statement in order to emphasize it, writers may have needed to vary its form. But apart from this, writers should follow carefully the principle of parallelism. Notes Which one is right? Formerly, science was taught by the textbook method, while now the laboratory method is employed. Formerly, science was taught by the textbook method; now it is taught by the labratory method. More Notes Often, people attempt to have parallelism but often fail. In order to have parallelism you must have similarity of structure in a pair or series of related words, phrases, or clauses. Example She likes to sing, to dance, and to play. My objections are, first ,the injustice of the measure; second, that it is unconstitutional. Expressing coordinate ideas in simlar form is also known as parallelism or parallel construction.

Although you may sometimes vary the form for emphasis, you usually should maintain parallel construction. More examples My objections are, first,that the measure is unjust; second, that it is unconstitutional. A time not for words but
