Spoken language interference patterns (SLIPs) are aspects of speaking that appear in writing, sometimes creating a conversational tone, but often lowering the formality. Occasionally, this results in errors, particularly when the writer is inexperienced. This study linguistically classifies and illustrates SLIPs in several forms of written discourse: student writing, early modern English, «plain English», email, and scientific writing. As written language evolves, SLIPs become part of the standard. Writers who learn to effectively use SLIPs can strengthen the readability of their texts by engaging their readers while avoiding errors.
