Rhetorical Invention in Design: Constructing a System and Spec.
Haller, Cynthia R.
Written Communication, v17 n3 p353-89 Jul 2000
Analyzes how one disciplinary design heuristic influenced the production of both a computer system and a specification text for the system to investigate how heuristics used for rhetorical invention and design might be related. Indicates that disciplinary heuristics and rhetorical topics overlap in design; however, the rhetorical character of disciplinary heuristics is obscured in textual representations of the design. (SC)
