    Personify

    In scientific papers scientists ususally employ the construction:

    ...analysis of variace indicated...

    ...this findings evidence...

    ...these results suggest....

    These are examples of personification of innanimated results. Is it a good english or we should avoid it?

    Re: Personify

    Yes, this reporting method can be used, especially in science where you often will be using the words "findings, evidence, and analysis."
