Writing Objective Tone

Sep 6, 2022

Tone is the essayist’s mentality toward the theme. 

The author’s attitude is expressed through the words and details he or she selects.  

Author’s Purpose of writing can be:

  • To inform, to persuade, to entertain

Author’s Purpose can be identified through the:

  • main idea, pattern and tone of writing

Tone is an author’s attitude toward the subject he/she is writing about. 


Subjective tone is:

  • biased, emotional, personal, and often informal

Objective tone is unbiased. It does not show any emotions or against a topic; therefore, it is unbiased or neutral. Often objective tone uses higher level words and avoids pronouns such as I and you, creating a formal tone. 

An objective tone is used when the writer wants to remain neutral or avoid upsetting readers. 

It reports facts without siding with involved parties in order to avoid bias or an accusatory tones. 

An objective tone is often used when reviewing products or reporting news. 


An objective tone is often used as a formal or professional tone, in academic or scholarly papers. 

Objective tone doesn’t include any information about the writer.  

The writer focuses on only the facts and figures rather than including his/her opinion.
