Macdonald-Ross, Michael; Smith, Eleanor B.
This bibliography is a first edition designed to aid the work of the Textual Communication Research Unit and will be followed by a further edition in two years' time. Sources relevant to textual communication, except those pertaining exclusively to broadcasting or children's texts, are arranged as either pertaining to language or to visual design. A few useful references not directly relevant to the design of texts are included at the beginning as a matter of record. The language area is divided into philosophy, linguistics, instructional psychology, programed learning, readability, analysis of texts, reading and writing style. The visual design area is divided into general, graphs-charts-tables, scientific and technical diagrams, algorithms, maps, typography, scripts and symbols. (WH)
