"Ourselves among Others": A New Metaphor for Business and Technical Writing.
Weiss, Timothy
Technical Communication Quarterly, v1 n3 p23-36 Sum 1992
Reexamines the dominant metaphor of "selling" in business/technical writing in view of diversifying readerships and global marketplace. Advocates replacing it with a metaphor of interculturalism/internationalism--"ourselves among others," signifying that "bridge-building" across differences will be the key in these contexts. (SR)
