Abstract:
COGNITIVE ENGINEERING WRITING 1) summarizes and combines the work of Linguists, of Brain Scientists, of Usage Gurus, and of Cognitive Scientists to give the reader a scientific description of English Grammar; 2) derives inductive rules of English Usage, like punctuation, appositive phrases, and parallel construction from this description; 3) introduces Ideographic Editing, a method for converting rough drafts into more elegant and efficient final documents; and 4) combines these with the work of Logicians Curt Gödel and Edward Yourdan to explain logical closure, leading to a method the engineer can effectively use to design closed systems destined for automatic control.
