Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to look at means of expressivity in the technical text. I have identified the following: the use of tenses, adverbs, adjectives, quotation marks, modal verbs, inversions, questions, and figurative language. In order to identify these aspects, I used the book Strategic Planning for Water by Hugh Howes. These observations can help students of English for Specific Purposes understand how to work with the expressivity of the technical text.
