Abstract : When words, symbols and figures are committed to writing, it is generally done with the intent of transmitting the writer's thoughts to those of others. The success of this intent is contingent upon a multitude of variables. This paper examines a few of the variables which determine techniques for transmitting information as applied to the specific field of technical writing. There is no attention directed to the communication of emotions, philosophies and the like. Rather, attention is directed to the communication of specific ideas, through writing, related to technical type subjects. (Author)
