    • Thread Starter


    can someone just look at this and the past paper with the sources on above and give me a rough grade / mark out of 48! cheers i've posted this in 2 threads so someone better look at it

    also here's the 4th grouping on formailty that i forgot to type up with the rest

    Texts A B and G: formality. Text A is informal in the beginnign with overlaps and laughter in the conversation which are typical of this genre of spontaneous speech, the level of formality changes towards the end of the conversation as Mr Hunter explains about his son and how 'he's a European, technical manager for a firm of all things, meat processors'. This change in formality would suggest he's trying to impress Mrs Wilson as Mr hunter starts to show off his son. Mrs Wilson Exhibits back channel behaviour such as ' Oh right' showing she's not interested and the conversation has changed from friendly and chatty to a slightly more formal register. Text B is very informal, no punctuation is used apart from question and exclamation marks making it more easier to relate to 18-24 year olds as it makes it looks less complicated. Informal language such as 'mates' is used so it appears less formal and easier to connect the younger people aiding it's purpose of to persuade. Text G is informal as a handwritten style type face is used along with limited amounts of punctuation making it easier for an everyday householder to relate to meaning they're more likely to purchase 'BT Total Broadband'.
