  1. You notice it more in the Wot books - especially in Egwene chapters - but yeah, it's present in the Way of Kings as well (the only other Sanderson book I've read).
  2. I know Sanderson's writing's been criticized to death but I haven't yet seen anyone on any forum mention how he CONSTANTLY uses the words "suspect" and "certain". It's always "You are certain of this?", "I suspect that it is so" etc. instead of "Are you sure?" and "I expect".... It irritates me - a lot. There are situations where these words work better but he uses them in every single situation, obsessively. He probably does it to make the characters sound sophisticated; his dialogue is for the most part antiseptic and formal.
