English Coursework Help! Watch
Help me please! my english teacher is a very strict marker and is wanting me to include more theorists in my coursework. However im struggling to find anymore on language and power apart from fairclough and Waering. Ive based mine on a court case trial so i need to explore more viewpoints....
The best place to start is by looking at the references used in books like 'an introduction to sociolinguistics' to see where they got their info and theory.
Hope that helps!
Tannen - power in the workplace
Brown & Levinson - positive/negative politeness
Giles - accommodation theory
O'Barr & Atkins - courtroom study
