Adapting Grice's Maxims in the Teaching of Writing.
White, Ron
ELT Journal, v55 n1 p62-69 Jan 2001
Grice's maxims, which define the conditions for efficient spoken communications, can be adapted to the teaching of writing by providing both teachers and writers with a way of understanding successful and unsuccessful written correspondence in mono- and cross-cultural settings. Cultural differences are revealed in a survey of lay readers' responses to a sample letter. (Author/VWL)
