Abstract:

This volume explores the complex relations between norms and exemplars of
genres from business and technical communication. Contributors compare a
variety of types of norm with textual practices in a variety of ways. The
genres examined are typical of the range of audiences and media of
workplace and business communication: product withdrawal notices, press
releases, job ads, oral presentations, sales letters and tenders,
chairman's reports, and technical reports. They are compared with norms set
by teachers, by unimaginative practice, by more or less self-appointed
experts, or by practitioners who may not share the national or professional
culture of their colleagues. However accurate these may be, they never do
justice to the complexity of 'reality'. The contributors to this volume use
a wide variety of methods in their attempt to capture this reality. Many
analyse texts, but all combine this procedure with at least one other
approach and often more: questionnaires, experiments assessing the effect
of manipulated texts, analysis of practitioner comments, and use of natural
sources of practitioner judgements like awards for good practice.
