What are the linguistic features of user manual? In terms of discourse. (also called instruction manual, user guide, owner's manual etc.)

- use of infinitives or verbs in imperative

I am sorry but it's not clear what you are asking. Can you rephrase it?

I'm afraid I can't understand what you're asking. I'm not sure what you mean by "the linguistic features of a user manual".

I'm asking about the special features of a users manual texts.

What makes you think they have special features? Actually, for now, never mind. You have two very similar threads about user manuals on the go. I'm gong to close this one for now so you can concentrate on the other one. Once that's dealt with, we can come back to this one if it's still relevant and appropriate.
