Tone is one of the more important aspects of email communication, especially when it’s someone you communicate with often over email, but rarely in person. Written communication lacks facial expressions, body language, and tone of voice, and insteadĀ reliesĀ on word choice and punctuation. Because of this, tone is very easily miscommunicated, and something that you wrote to be quick and concise might actually come across as rude or annoyed. It never hurts to read an email out loud before you send it or have a coworker proofread it. If it sounds a little harsh to you, you can be sure that it will come across as harsh to the reader.
