This book covers the significant developments in plain language and the law since 1996. There are two new chapters, one on writing email and writing for the internet and the other on designing documents intended to be read on the computer screen. There is a new chapter, Plain Language around the World, which reflects the many developments in plain language on the international scene. While Australia is still an influential leader, the plain language movement is truly an international one. Developments in one jurisdiction influence others. For that reason, the new edition includes more information--plain language projects, case law, and legislation--from jurisdictions outside Australia.
