How to Describe Physical or Logical Location
Posted November 9, 2009on:
How you order (sequence) content in a document depends on what you are trying to say. For example, if you are trying to describe the physical or logical location of one or more objects, or how the parts of an object are arranged, words that show spatial order will help you get your point across to your audience.
Spatial order indicates where something is physically or logically located.
Here are some words that illustrate location: above, below, horizontal, vertical, behind, before, next to, inside, outside, adjacent to, diagonally, in front of, overhead, under, and around. There are many others, of course. What other words can you think of to show spatial order?
Spatial order is scalable. You can use it to structure the outline of the entire document, the content of a single chapter, or one procedure. It all depends on the subject and purpose of your document. Elizabeth Lexleigh The Write Ideas
