Talking to Texts and Sketches: The Function of Written and Graphic Mediation in Engineering Design.
Lewis, Barbara
Business Communication Quarterly, v63 n2 p110-16 Jun 2000
Describes the author's research that explores the role of language, particularly texts, in the engineering design process. Notes that results of this case study support a new "mediated" model of engineering design as an inventional activity in which designers use talk, written language, and other symbolic representations as tools to think about and think through their design process.
