achieving oral style as well as adapting messages to specific
audiences and occasions.  In the next two assignments you will
improve your skills in writing informative and persuasive speech
texts.  In the fourth and fifth assignments, you will compose speech
texts for delivery by a student in Z402, a senior-level management
