Based on course listings at accredited institutions, the *academic*
field is technical communication. Based on job listings, titles, BLS,
etc., the *professional* field is technical writing.

It comes down to one word: results. Achieve consistent, quality results
and you can call yourself whatever the hell you like. ;)

The field is definitely technical communication. There should be no
argument there, unless you have solid evidence that everything all
accredited institutions have been doing to teach technical communication
under that umbrella is flat wrong...
