Why can we omit "clearly" in a sentence?
You can remove most instances of the word clearly from your work. Clearly is unnecessary exposition that doesn't add anything to your writing. In fact, it increases wordiness without any added benefit.
- Original: The train was clearly delayed.
- Rewrite: The train was delayed.
