Some Stylistic Variations in Scientific Writing
Tagliacozzo, Renata
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 29, 3, 136-40, May 78

Two groups of articles dealing with the same subject but differing in degree of specialization are compared; the technical articles have lower percentages of function words and higher numbers of noun adjuncts than the general articles.
