    Is this how they change within the one workplace or how they way language changes over different work?

    For the first one you could consider an exchange between two colleagues, an exchange between a customer assistant and a customer who is a regular and an exchange between a customer who is not. So the best example I can think of for this is a coffee shop - an exchange between colleagues is most likely to be of a more informal register, equal power between both participants, friendly discourse etc. An exchange with a regular customer could take on the same features. However, an exchange with a customer who isn't regular will be more formal, more polite, friendly but not familiar. Think about what would be the norms of these conversations eg regular customer saying: my usual

    If it's looking at different workplaces consider a pub, a gourmet restaurant and somewhere like Starbucks. Think about the norms for these places too: in a pub you find your own seat and go to the bar to be served, restaurant with waitress service and Starbucks asking for a customers name and not bringing the order to the customer. And then consider the differences in language through register, discourse, expected outcomes etc
