This is a text for a course designed for nonnative English learners who are advanced in their study of the English language. Primarily, this material is for those students who are in the sciences, engineering, or agriculture and who must learn how to write about processes. The text examines three types of processes—reoccurring processes, nonreoccurring processes, and sets of directions—for their use of person, voice, and tense. Then, it presents rhetorical "rules" for their use. These "rules" are not formal, absolute, or complete; they are intended to be guidelines which help the students write about processes correctly.
