    Hey, the title says it all really. I currently have a piece of coursework due, it is analysing a transcript. I'm stuck on what features to include etc, and what certain features mean. Can anyone help please? I can upload my draft, if it helps to understand my question.

    Thanks,
    Becky.

    It depends if you've been asked to analyse transcript features (such as the pauses) or the actual language/tone etc of the transcript. I can help you once you clarify this

    I'm doing Lit and Lang combined and I'm analysing speech transcripts for an exam, not coursework, but I'd assume the essay structure was the same. We're were told to set it out like this:

    *Audience, Purpose and Context, and how these influence the speakers (I normally use this as my introduction)
    *How different speakers address their audience, ie choice of pronoun or rhetorical questions
    *Language choices, emotive, figuarative, hyperbole, metaphor, similie, hedges, phatic utterances etc
    *Style of delivery, occurrence of elipsis, elisions, contractions, accents, repetition
    *Structural features, how it's arranged and organised, turn-taking, adjacency pairs, side sequences, repairs, interruptions, overlaps etc
    *Non-verbal aspects, fillers, pauses, punctuation, exclamation marks
    *Conclusion

    In terms of what they mean, I guess you just have to say why the author used it. So they may have used a metaphor to help their listener understand what they're on about or maybe to make them laugh, kinda thing.

    We have to follow this structure for comparing two texts, one prepared, one a spontaneous transcript, so it might not work entirely for just 1 text. Good Luck

    I need to mention both of these features really. I will upload what I have done so far, and i'll also upload the written transcript.

    Thanks,
