Jerz: Writing for the Internet (EL 236)


15 September 2006

Ex 3: Audience and Style Variations

The way we write depends heavily on the context in which we write. 1) Look through your archives, and find a personal e-mail (or chat transcript) and a more professional e-mail (or a letter you sent on paper). Identify and eplain the reaons for several specific differences. (200 words). 2) Rewrite the personal message in the style of a formal e-mail, and rewrite the formal communication in the style of an informal chat transcript. Play the role of the recipient, and write back in the same style, or a comletely different style. Be creative. (300 words.) 3) Write up a list of 3 significant issues you feel this exercise has illustrated, or questions it has raised in your mind. Refer specifically to material we have already covered in the course. (150 words.)
