In defence of brackets (3)

Most writers don’t use brackets often enough. I’ve given before a couple of examples where using brackets makes a text clearer. Here’s another example. I recently read something saying in Coity, near Bridgend, where they lived until her death.

This wording doesn’t make it clear enough that these people lived in Coity, not in Bridgend. Brackets would make this much clearer: in Coity (near Bridgend), where they lived until her death.

For earlier posts on brackets, please see:

Don’t be afraid of using brackets if they make things clearer.
