The Message Is the Massage: Orality and Literacy Once More.
Brandt, Deborah
Written Communication, v6 n1 p31-44 Jan 1989
Reappraises conventional distinctions between oral-like and literate-like discourse, particularly Tannen's distinction between involvement focus and message focus. Treats message as an embodiment of involvement, and cohesion as an aspect of a developing writer-reader relationship. Offers speculations for rethinking "literate orientation." (SR)
