During my work experience I have been working in two different companies: as a translator in an office, and as an external affairs manager in another company. So regarding this I would like to speak about the differences between formal and informal language points, as it is considered to be one of the most important parts of any language. While working as a manger I often use different writing styles while writing official emails and letters to friends. These two basic different styles are termed as formal and informal styles of writing. I would like to bring some examples of formal and informal writing: e.g. 1: This is to inform you that your application for the job has been approved and you are hereby requested to be present tomorrow at 11.30 a.m. for a personal round of interview at our office. e.g 2: Hey, guess what I have been called for a personal round of interview tomorrow. I am so happy. Wish me luck to perform well tomorrow. The difference between the above two written communications is obvious — the first one being formal one and the second, the informal one. So, what are basic differences between formal and informal writing? At first it the style and the tonality of the language used by the writer. And ideally, the writer should first analyze the situation, the context, and the recipient and accordingly determine the tone, vocabulary, and the style to be used before finally concluding to write. While choosing what type we are going to pay attention to the following points. 1.Colloquial words Colloquial words and expressions are usually avoided in formal writings. Informal writing is as good as spoken conversation. Thus, it may include a number of colloquial words and phrases, slang language, etc. Informal writing uses a personal tone to relate directly to the reader. 2.Usage of person Personal style of writing is avoided in formal writing. Except for business letters, formal writing is usually in third person. In formal writing, the writer is disconnected from the subject matter and hence does use the point of view of the first person i.e. I, we or second person i.e. you. Whereas, informal writing is everything, first, second, or third person is taken into consideration depending upon the context. 3.Abbreviated words It is advisable to use full-words and avoid using abbreviated words in formal writing. Words like photograph, television, etc. are used in full in formal writing. Informal writing is full of short forms and abbreviations. The Photograph becomes photo, television becomes TV, etc. 4.Sentence formation Longer sentences are used in formal writing. The information should be as detailed and as elaborated as possible in formal style of writing. Every point should have an introduction, elaboration, and conclusion. Informal writing is made up of much shorter sentences. Information shared is brief and in an informal tone. In conclusion I would like to say that these are the basic differences between the two, it must be noted that none of them is incorrect. It depends on the situation how to write or what type to use. Formal writing is required in academic, business or official communications, and informal is preferred for communication with friends, family and close ones.
