  1. Chapter 20: Using Parallelism in Sentences • Parallelism means balance in a sentence. • To create sentences with parallelism, remember this rule: • Similar points should get a similar structure. • Two steps in checking a sentence for a parallel structure: • Look for the list in the sentence. • Put the parts of the list into a similar structure. (You may have to change or add something to gain the parallel structure.)
