Another distinctive feature is illustrating the language style guidelines with profuse examples. The scope of the subject is vast but somewhere a line has to be drawn. Author tried to so draw the line as to provide for most of the routine requirements of drafting and organizing geoscientific material. Memoir Series: 58. Printed Pages: 270.
