Kohl, John R.
Technical Communication: Journal of the Society for Technical Communication, v46 n2 p149-66 May 1999
Argues that, given the expanding audience of non-native readers of English and the need to translate technical writing, technical writing should be unambiguous and predictable. Explains what syntactic cues are and why technical communicators should use them. Discusses integrating this approach into established documentation processes, and provides a procedure for learning to use syntactic cues effectively. (SR)
