The Influence of the Purpose of a Business Document on Its Syntax and Rhetorical Schemes.
Myers, Marshall
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v29 n4 p401-08 1999
Investigates how the purpose of three types of business and technical documents (instructions, annual reports, and sales promotional letters) affects the syntactical and rhetorical choices authors make in writing these documents. Outlines partial syntactical and rhetorical "fingerprints" of these documents to offer students norms they can go by in constructing such documents. (SR)
