Culture as an Element in Teaching Technical Writing.
Mirshafiei, Mohsen
Technical Communication: Journal of the Society for Technical Communication, v41 n2 p276-82 May 1994
Surveys nonnative students in upper-division technical writing courses to assess their opinions about how their native cultures affected their ability to communicate in English. Finds that cultural influence was significant, as was language interference. Suggests that teachers of nonnative students and professionals should design instruction to accommodate these influences.
