The Technical Communicator as Author: Meaning, Power, Authority.
Slack, Jennifer Daryl; And Others
Journal of Business and Technical Communication, v7 n1 p12-36 Jan 1993
Explores parallels found by comparing descriptions of the technical communicator with differing views of the communication process--the transmission, translation, and articulation views of communication. Argues from the standpoint of the articulation view for a new conception of the technical communicator as author and of technical communication as a discourse that produces an author. Outlines pedagogical implications. (RS)
