    Theorists (that I've learnt about in class) -

    Power - Wareing 1999 (3 types of power - political, personal,social group)
    - Fairclough (Power behind/in discourse)
    - Deborah Tannen (political correctness)

    Occupation - Sinclair and Coulthard (initiation,response,feedback theory)
    - Wareing (power in the workplace)
    - Work talk theory (Lakoff?)

    Accent - Trudgill (Norwich N pronunciation theory)
    - Workman (hierarchy of accents by intelligence around the UK)

    Gender - 4 D's (difference, diversity, deficit, dominance models)
    - Dale Spender (feminism numerous theories there lol)

    I think that's it but if there are any more then please don't hesitate to add!

    If it is I'll cry, there was no way i could have the sheet on my table and my paper at the same time so i had to keep checking my sheet by moving stuff around which was very awkward to say the least lol

    ...although you could argue that the question 3 was actually region and class/social groups together, so 4/4 topics actually appeared in some form or other.
    True, true. It seems more likely that region and social groups will be somewhat linked as they both have similar theorists such as Trudgill, Labov, Petyt and Bernstein
