Idea: Increase reading speed by colouring grammar words

Sentences contain structures called clauses. These clauses are separated by words like ‘and’, ‘but’ etc.

When you’re reading a difficult piece of text, it’s often because the writer has used passive voice, changing the structure of the sentence and making it hard to read.

If you highlight conjunctions, commas and full stops in a set colour, you can immediately see the structure of those sentences much easier now. Add in words like “If”, “While”, “therefore” etc, and we can support this further.

Here’s an example of a CSS sheet that is trying to do this, but it looks like it needs work:
