David Blyth asks
What is style?
Here are 3 ways to look at it:
1. composition's concern with diction and sentence variety
( J.Lauer et al)
2. fashion (in the 'style' of Pearl Jam, Madonna, Michael Jackson, etc.
(as Dan Lupo might approach this topic)
3. political
(as in the admonition of the editor of Technical Communication to
use gender-free language, avoiding sexism).
More grist for the mill :)
