    I'm just completing my English Language coursework but I still need a few more words.
    I'm hoping someone could maybe let me know of some other theorists I could look into to write about?
    I'm looking at tag questions and interruptions and I've already wrote about Fishman, Cameron and Coates, Lakoff, Zimmerman and West and Tannen, thanks!

    That sounds like plenty, so it's probably a question of writing more elsewhere than adding more theorists!

    Have you related the work of these theorists/researchers to your own data analysis yet?

    Thanks! Wasn't sure in which area I could add more
    I have, but I think it's just the matter of finding more things in my transcripts to talk about XD
    thanks anyway

    If you can find anything by Paul Baker (Sexed Texts is a good place to start) he looks at queer linguistics in some depth. Deborah Cameron's The Language and Sexuality Reader is handy. Not sure there's much online though...

    Jennifer Coates and Deborah Jones

    Jennifer Coates looks at all-female conversation and builds on Deborah Tannen's ideas.
