Subject: Query about simplified English in technical documents

This is a query about the use of simplified english in the preparation
of technical documents.

Does anyone have references to publications which describe specifications
and/or programs for producing simplified English in the preparation of
technical documents? In particular, does anyone have a copy of the
publication listed below?

 AECMA, 1988: A Guide for the Preparation of Aircraft Maintenance
 Documentation in the International Aerospace Maintenance Language.
 Change no. 4 - Dec. 80/88. Paris.

If so, please contact Lappinwatson.ibm.com or Mccordwatson.ibm.com.
Thanks.

Subject: Query: Intersentential Syntax

Is anybody working on specifically syntactic (i.e., nonsemantic
and nonpragmatic) rules governing units larger than a sentence?

I'm looking to acquire some of the videotapes in the PBS series called
"The Story of English". I've tried calling PBS Video Sales and they
don't carry it. I've also tried WNET (in NYC) to find out what they
might know but came up empty-handed. I've got the "companion volume"
but it has no info about the tapes. I've even checked PBS-/NPR-related
merchandise catalogues ("Wireless" and "Signals")... Any ideas?
