Why I Don't Believe in the "Real World" Anymore.
Parsons, Gerald
Technical Writing Teacher, v16 n1 p42-51 Win 1989
Argues that reference to the term "real world" among technical writing professionals damages the field's pedagogical, political, and intellectual credibility. Supports replacing "real" with a more accurately descriptive term like "practical" to eliminate the pejorative meanings of the present usage. (MM)
