Synopsis

Part of the new Allyn & Bacon Series in Technical Communication, Technical Writing Style is equally appropriate as a core text or as a supplement. This text offers the most current and comprehensive instruction available in achieving an effective style in technical docu- ments. It shows that technical prose style varies from the highly formal to the colloquial, from the pretentious to the plain, and it demonstrates the many stylistic strategies writers should consider for every technical document they write.



Among the major topics included are: style and technical writing style; audiences and discourse communities; persuasion through style; diction; style in sentences and paragraphs; tone; bias; ethics; and editing for style. Throughout, engaging real-world case studies and numerous examples reinforce the author's discussion of effective and ineffective technical prose styles.
