Bill Dommett’s Biography
With a career spanning over 40 years in Queensland State Government Food Science and Technology laboratories in Australia, as well as a Master’s Degree in Science (Microbiology), a Post-Graduate Diploma in Information Processing and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Business Administration, Bill Dommett is highly qualified and very experienced in science, computer science and management. In addition, Bill is well versed in speaking, writing and reading English, both technical and otherwise.
Throughout his career, Bill was heavily involved in preparing, writing, analysis, editing and presentation of scientific information from his own work and the work of others. These included research papers, advisory articles for industry, lectures to tertiary students and industry personnel, seminar and conference papers, supervision of Master’s degree students, theses, reports and work manuals. Other work included standard methods development and systems analysis and design of scientific industry programs, with and without computers.
Especially during editing of papers, Bill became aware of where improvements could be made in the text, tables, graphs and diagrams, to make them more effective in communicating the key aspects of the work to the readers or audience in logical, easy to follow styles.
Bill has written one book called ‘Is Your Picture Worth 1,000 Words?’ for people working in business, science, engineering, technology, education, societies and clubs. The book guides the reader on how to make their tables, charts, graphs and diagrams more effective and addresses various problems involved in presenting visual information.
His second book is called ‘Nu-English’, which focusses on the many imperfections in the English language and offers for serious consideration a revised English language which is free of many of the defects, thus making the language easier and quicker to learn and to use. Improvements include: a unique expanded truly phonetic alphabet with English-derived unambiguous symbols for each sound; rigid spelling rules without exceptions; removal of silent letters and unnecessary group names; logical simple standardised grammar rules without exceptions; and conversion of irregular formatting rules, especially for irregular verbs, to more regular rules. Some comments are also directed at some aspects of French and German languages.
Bill has now retired and lives in Brisbane, Australia. He has two adult children, their partners and four adult grandchildren in Brisbane and in Ohio, US. His current interests include woodcraft, social clubs, travel, fiction and non-fiction reading, documentaries and films.
