Description

Chapter 7 examines spoken discourse in a variety of settings. Here you will begin to examine how the context of a language event influences spoken discourse. We demonstrate how different discursive events (called ‘registers’) such as casual conversation, interviews and courtroom interactions stem from distinctive contexts of situation and show the influence of situational constructs on discursive choices.
