Questions in market research surveys are long and wordy, partly because you need to make it unambiguously clear to your participants what you want them to answer, and partly because marketeers want to put their own language into the mouth of consumers (see a previous post).

When presenting the results of market research I often chop down these sentences to the bare essential. It makes them easier to digest. A small footnote sends people to an appendix where they can read the full prose.
