Exercise 1. Read and discuss the text.

FAX

The word "fax" comes from the word "facsimile". A fax machine will send a duplicate of the message, document, design or photo that іs fed into it.

Faxing is a means of telecommunication that has developed very quickly over the past few years. There are various models of fax machine which connect to a telephone socket and which work on a system similar to the telephone system.

Charges are measured in telephone units and therefore vary асcording to the time of day and where the fax is being sent. The advantages of fax include instant reception of documents and documentary evidence of what has been transferred. A document can be 1 relayed from one source to hundreds of other receivers, for example, if 1 the head office of a chain store wants to circulate a memo or report to і its branches.

Read and discuss the following faxes.

1. This fax is from Lynk & Co, who received a damaged consignment 1 and were told by their supplier, Mr Causio, to return it.

TELEX

Telegrams and cables can be sent at any time and from any post office. This means of communication is available for twenty hours a day, but between sending a message and its arrival there can be short delay. Telex is as direct as using the phone.

The telex is a machine like a typewriter but the difference is that it has a dial on its casting. You can send messages by dialing the receiver's number or by asking the operator at the exchange to con­nect you. An answerback code will appear on the teleprinter indicat­ing that the sender is through as soon as the operator has dialed the code. The message is typed and will appear on the receiver's machine.

Besides the advantages of sending a cable, telex is available right in the office, you needn't go to the post office. It offers a direct line with immediate reply.

The telex is frequently used for business communication nowadays.

The language of telexes is similar to the language used in telegraphic services, with the same rules, but there are addi­tional abbreviations and conventions in the language of telex messages.

First, the message is written in a note form.

Secondly, all important figures should be given in words in order to avoid misunderstanding. Thirdly, at the end of the message it іs advisable to repeat any figures, percentages or unusual words. This practice is known as a "collation".

In telexes all polite phrases are limited to one word "please", and there іs also one closing word "regards". A sign "+" is put at the end.

Layout of telexes

Answerback-     Message-   Sender's name- 154738 RGVSL CONSIGNMENT LD 1846 ONLY ACCEPTABLE 12 O/O TRADE DISK NOT THE 37 0/0 OFFERED PLEASE CONFIRM DAN ROLLINS

 

Telecommunicators have developed their own language. It is very similar to English but it has its own vocabulary and its own grammar. A sentence like "The meeting has been arranged for the 9th Oc­tober" becomes "MEETING ARRANGED 9th OCTOBER".

Telex charges depend on the time it takes to send the message (like telephoning, but cheaper), so telex operators have developed their own abbreviations.
