Warren, Thomas L.
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v31 n2 p159-73 2001
Looks at a sample of instructional documents using Restricted and Elaborated Code and metadiscourse analysis to determine how easily users can read and understand the material. Suggests that the documents do not send a clear message to authors and editors and can be stylistically hard to understand and consequently, the approved standards themselves are hard to read and interpret.
