PROPERTIES OF TECHNICAL WRITING
As letters comprise words, technical writing is composed of properties that serve as its building blocks. Vicente, et.al. (1997) cite........
et.al -An abbreviation of the Latin et alii, meaning “and others.”
ACCURACY
in technical writing means the use of precise words, coherent sentences, well-developed paragraphs and a balanced report.

BREVITY
means a concise, straight-to-the-point type of writing. Information is delivered without mincing words and zeroes in on the subject
COHERENCE

refers to the logical agreement of sentences, paragraphs and groups of paragraphs. Transition from one thought to the next is done smoothly and consistently throughout the written work.

CONFIDENCE

is being an authority on the subject of your report. you yourself must have a solid conviction in your report; readers will sense sign credibility problem

DIGNITY

refers to terms used in technical writing conveying formality. Ideas are well-thought of and translated into writing using succinct words. There is an air of authority, of credibility in the work. Contracting words is sacrilege because it takes away the dignity in words.

EMPHASIS

in technical writing means being discriminating. As the writer of the report, you act as the captain of the ship and the readers, your crew. you steer them in the direction you wish them to take by identifying the points you want to stress.

GRAMMATICAL CORRECTNESS

is critical, not only in technical writing, but also in other writing activities. Incorrect grammar is the bump that disturbs the smooth flow of words and ideas in any written work. Your target readers are presumed to be aware of the basic rules in grammar and if they see that you are not taking that into consideration, they would be disappointed. If that happens, you lose your readers and you become less credible.
