To what etent can this be used as a techneque for other subjects?
I'm think more in terms of science, but also other social sciences, would its effectiveness stand up in such alternative fields?

Apollyon - Grammar Fascist

PEE(R) could stand up in other language subjects (Irish, French, German, etc.),where similar stuff is written, but would be less useful for, say, physics. It might work well in History, eg:

P: The German defeat at Stalingrad was a turning poit of the WWII.
E: German soldiers died of starvation and hypothermia, and their machinery froze. The Russians, being used to the prevalent conditions, were then able to mount a gigantic counter-attack which decimated the German army, intimidating the axis and giving hope to the Allies.

Note that I have left out the 1st E as it is not quite applicable here, but could be used if you found information from a primary or secondary source.

the first E would definately be used in history in the exam or when referring to sources containing text in coursework. however, its primary and most useful usage is for english.
