The Elements of International English Style


The Elements of International English Style: A Guide to Writing English Correspondence, Reports, Technical Documents, and Internet Pages for a Global Audience.
Telling some global associates you will arrive at the airport on 5/6 will result in your getting there on the sixth of May but their coming to pick you up on the fifth of June. And imagine the financial hilarity when your accounting department discovers a British billion is a thousand times larger than an American billion. Academic and consultant Weiss gives all the details on International English, which is designed to be culture-free and also culture-fair. He gives the principles of communicating simply, clearly, and without burdens, and offers advice on cultural adaptation. Weiss includes a number of examples and exercises and a portfolio of bad news letters. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
