    Try to reduce the usage of articles

    Try to reduce the usage of articles, subject pronouns, object pronouns and prepositions while writing an advertisement.

    Hi,

    I made the sentence myself but have some doubt on the usage of "reduce" in there.
    Is it ok to use it in there?
    You know why I have doubt on it? Because I thought the word "reduce" is only used when we want to talk about scales or temperatures or degrees, and stuff like that. But I am not sure.

    Thank you.

    It's OK but I would use "limit".
