Not to play the devil's advocate—I really do agree with what she's saying here—but what about the Greek tendency to let the antecedents of pronouns be pages away? When I first started reading Greek (30+ years ago now!), that was the thing that tripped me up more than anything else. The antecedent could be way back when and we were supposed to catch it?
I got used to it, and it actually bled into my English writing. I would repeatedly get comments on my papers saying, "Antecedent unclear." Yep. It was. Blame it on the Greek : ) Even now, I have to watch carefully or I allow antecedents to wallow in unclarity...
