Can Text Be Too Friendly?
Nagabhand, Saranya; And Others
Reading in a Foreign Language, v9 n2 p895-907 Spr 1993
To make text attractive to readers, writers may add supporting information. In texts of the characteristic topic type, this information may include narrative accounts, questions to the reader, and the use of examples. The use of narrative accounts and examples may confuse the reader. Awareness of topic type may help overcome some of these difficulties. (17 references) (Author/CK)
