    Maxim of MannerBe ClearAvoid obscurity of expression.Avoid ambiguity.Be brief (avoid unnecessary prolixity).Be orderly.Example:

    A:Can you take out the trash?

    B Improper:Well, it is probable that I would take out the trash more often if someone weren't flagrantly wasteful, such that the majority of trash weren't always coming from that person.

    B Proper:Sure, but we need to talk about how we are assigning the chores around here when I get back.
