Abstract

This article historically contextualises the emergence and development of English language technical writing from pre-industrial Britain onwards, looking in particular at how-to or instructional writing. In doing this, it shows the deep-rooted and enduring nature of many of the linguistic, organisational and visual features of the text in modern English language how-to or instructional manuals.
