TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
A question has come up concerning the use of the possessive in technical
reports. The author maintains that it's unprofessional to use the
possessive. So instead of writing "the pilot's head" we should write "the
pilot head". The second sounds like pidgin to me. (Me take pilot head and
bash with rock.)
