Since the time of Aristotle (about 384–322 B.C.), numerous 'Models of 'Technical Communication' have been on exhibit in various parts of the world. I will confine my attention to the four most important models of 'Technical Communication' that have generated a great deal of buzz as the preeminent soft skill among English Litterateurs* throughout the years. The purpose of this research is to shed light on two crucial components of the Technical Communication Models that have been utilized throughout the history of English Literature.
- Provision of built-in motivation from various aspects of the TECHNICAL COMMUNICATION as applied by the English litterateurs for the purpose of fostering favourable Reader's Response throughout the ages.
- Gradual evolution of the theory of TECHNICAL COMMUNICATION and its keen application inter alia in English literature as the softest of the ‘soft skills'; and
Gradual evolution of the theory of TECHNICAL COMMUNICATION and its keen application inter alia in English literature as the current study also focuses on the fact that the last two models of Technical Communication that I discussed, namely the Shannon –Weaver Model and the Laswell Model, are indebted not only to the devolution of the Communication Theory under Electronics and Communication Engineering but also to interdisciplinary Subjects such as Applied Linguistics, Comparative Literature, and Communicative English. This is one of the main focuses of the present study. It should come as no surprise that these Models have been adopted by the litterateurs of English literature, either consciously or unconsciously, to wring out a favourable Reader's Response.
