The Negative Impact of Copy-pasting within Memoranda: A Rhetorical Analysis of the Army’s Sharp Program Memoranda

Lionell Zapanta Manlutac, University of Texas at El Paso

Abstract

This research used the framework of the coding system of grounded theory to analyze the United States Army’s Sexual Harassment and Assault Response and Prevention (SHARP) Program memoranda. A rhetorical analysis framework was used to point out the need to incorporate social justice into technical communication. The analysis of the copy-pasted information shows that the author lacks an authorial voice and writing to a general audience, which creates a lack of exigency in creating a safe and healthy work environment.
