AIDA Sentences

AIDA is a scheme for English sentences. Such sentences are:

  • Atomic: a sentence describing one thought that cannot be further broken down in a practical way
  • Independent: a sentence that can stand on its own, without external references like "this effect" or "we"
  • Declarative: a complete sentence ending with a full stop that could in theory be either true or false
  • Absolute: a sentence describing the core of a claim ignoring the (un)certainty about its truth and ignoring how it was discovered (no "probably" or "evaluation showed that"); typically in present tense


See the following publications for the details:


A simple example of an AIDA sentence is:

Malaria is transmitted by moquitoes.

This is a more specific and more complex example:

The degree of hepatic reticuloendothelial function impairment does not differ between cirrhotic patients with and without previous history of SBP.
