Also, does anyone know if it will be the same examiner marking both of the questions?
monological (jokes, wedding and commentary), graphological (book, comic bag, bin letter) and field specific lexis (halo transcript, commentary and detective) do they sound alright for my groups?
Hated that exam, I did humour (jokes and comic), spoken (commentary, conversation as a sub group of spontaneous speech and the marriage one as it was created to be spoken aloud but doesn't appear as spontaneous due to legal nature) and graphology (all the others). Also did technology. Pretty sure it didn't go well, can't wait three months to find out...
I did language and gender and mentioned about gender stereotypes, connotations, contrast between men and women. I did this course via home study so the only theorists that I learned were those relating to gender in spoken conversations. As the extract was not a transcript and featured no represented speech I struggled to find any theory to relate to the text so I didn't mention any theory or concepts, I have never heard of the machine theory......... How much will that affect my grade?
I grouped the transcripts together because they were both spoken discourses, the bin letter, the comic and the novel back cover because of graphology, and I can't even remember what the others were! Apart from the wedding thing because I was running out of time and I couldn't think of anything to say so I left it. I don't think you have to use every text, do you? And I did the language and technology question because (duh) I'm a teenager and I have a lot to say about Twitter!
I talked about Child language acquisition (I'm resitting so I know this)
Would I get marks for that?
