Business English for Zoning and Real Estate (PHL)
Business English for Zoning and Real Estate turns the revised 2012 City of Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) Zoning Code into easy explanations. Written by Robert Toryak the book is dedicated to anyone who has ever been frustrated or confused by American Business English, because Business is another language.
This book defines the new terms and the language used in the code in the ExecuSpeak Dictionary® style: plain English and then used in a sentence. The goal is to accelerate learning for all those who use the new code and thus support growth and investment in the City.
The dictionary is organized alphabetically with 14 subject matter indexes and includes two charts (District Descriptions & Uses and Dimensional Standards). You may use the book to learn the basic meaning of a term and also add to your understanding by seeing the term in its subject or business context.
The 14 Subject Matter Indexes Include:
- Architecture and Engineering
- Decision Makers
- Home Improvement
- Legal Terms
- Rules of Measurement
