What: STC-ETC Presentation by Em Turner Chitty


Join us for a presentation by Em Turner Chitty! Em teaches both at the
University of Tennessee's English Language Institute and at Oak Ridge
National Laboratory. At ORNL, she teaches 12-hour courses on technical
writing for research scientists, engineers, and support personnel. In
addition, she provides individualized language support for ORNL staff
who require in-depth English language assistance in writing or
presentation skills.

Em's unique approach to how English language history is mirrored in the
vocabulary choices we make helps writers understand the power of "plain
language" as well as how to "translate" among the different levels of
formality available in English.
