Sarah (sarahc -at- indigo -dot- ie) said: "...this client is keen on "restricted
vocabulary" or Controlled English..."

What is "controlled English"? Is that the same as "Plain English"? There
are several web sites regarding plain English. I'm working on a Master's
thesis on plain English and how far federal legislation has gotten into it
over the past 20 years.

Thanks for any information.
