One of my groupings was pragmatics, but found it hard putting Text G into this group, knew there was something in the meaning, but kinda didnt get the joke or whatever it was? Anyone else know?
Is two groups ok? I started my third group but couldn't finish it - the timings really annoying! I did language and technology which was a god send!
anyone do language and mode? Child language acquisition?
Also, Text G? How freaking unfair was THAT?
I did 4 groupings, I did humour, to inform, mode and register. Can't say how I did on language and gender but I brought in stereotypes and compared the 'manual', 'machines' and 'tools' to male talk e.g male jargon (although men don't read instruction manuals usually), just like lakoff stated that women use domestical jargon and other lexical terms for colours etc.
Personally, I don't think Text G was that bad. Text B and D (the joke and the marriage one) were the worst in my opinion.
I did a group on the use of linguistic features to advertise and spoke about graphology and pragmatics.
The second group was of features of spoken discourse.
The third was a group on use of a specific audience, so pronouns and stuff.
But I didn't group Text B into any category and just left it and now I'm really nervous, do you think i'll lose marks :/
I didn't understand the joke from the comic to be of spiderman/batman, but did still put it in my grouping for Humour
I grouped them in
Pronouns (the one about the bins, the detective novel and the marriage one)
Spoken Mode (the comic, the xbox transcript and the commentary)
Humour (the jokes and the bin one)
I found that alright, but I ddin't get the comic so that confused me a bit
I did gender for section B and I just stereotyped loads, like about how men don't care about their appearance and women do, the thing about Barbie, the difference theory(?) in how men prefer football, etc. I felt like I was repeating myself a lot though, which was really annoying
