introduction

posted by .

Ms. Sue is this a good introduction for my presentation on the different psychological disorders:


Psychological disorders or personality disorders is defined as mental disorders with inflexible, enduring, maladaptive orderly sequences of adjustment to life associated with subjective distress or severe impairment of adaptive development or culture.

  • introduction -

    In my opinion, the sentence is too long. There are too many "or's" and adjecteves separated by commas, and I lost track of what the subject is all about. The first verb should be "are", not "is". Is the word "orderly" necessary?

    I would find it very hard to diagram that sentence; I lose track of what the prepositional phrases refer to.
