Editor's note
This is a maintenance page. Book is not a piece of software though. Please choose a more fitting title if you care. --Dan Polansky (talk) 17:51, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Feature Requests[edit | edit source]

The following are requests for features that the book should have.

Tone[edit | edit source]

I would like to see a treatment of tone, including the kind of tones that a piece of writing can have, possibly even with examples. --Dan Polansky (talk) 17:51, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Transition[edit | edit source]

The book mentions the need to keep an eyes on smooth transitions between paragraphs but has no dedicated paragraph on transitions, and as far as I remember close to no discussion of transitions. Examples would be helpful. --Dan Polansky (talk) 17:51, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

References/links to other books[edit | edit source]

I have read other books on exposition and rhetoric of the English Language. Additional material may be helpful, maybe a page with links to other books on the subject? I would recommend reading "On Writing Well" by William Zinnser, for example as it's also quite accessible.
