Editor for this issue: Dan Parker <danlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Dear All,

I have been asked to teach a course on Written Communication and am looking
for a suitable textbook. The course is for an MA in translation and I
envisage its content to be an investigation of the linguistic features of
different forms and styles of written communication (academic, business,
literary, personal, etc.) rather than a ‘how to’ course or one which offers
advice on effectiveness or writing skills. The course will be two semesters
long, so I don’t know if there is a single textbook that would cover the
whole of it. Suggestions for a number of possible texts would be very useful.

Many thanks in advance,

Mark Newson
