Rhetoric and Usage in Technical Writing.
Young, Art
Selecting criteria for usage is done in basically the same way for both technical writing and other forms of composition. Similarly, the same rhetorical theory applies to the teaching of both, and proves especially helpful in the teaching of formal report-writing skills in required freshman composition courses. Focusing on the appropriate voice, audience, subject matter, and purpose is vital to the clarity and readability of both formal and creative composition. (KS)
