Shortening and tightening sentences

English tip:

We talked about using the active voice yesterday.

Sometimes, when we use affixes, it shortens the sentences, tightening the language. Here are some examples:

He is not honest–> He is dishonest
This is not a usual situation. –> This is an unusual situation.
He was better than his classmates –> He outperformed his classmates.
I visited Taipei again this year.–> I revisited Taipei this year.
