could anyone suggest features that i may find in formal language?
i already have polysyllabic lexis and jagon!
I looked at three modern soap operas, specifically looking at the gay character within each soap. I wanted to see if the scriptwriter had used any techniques within each characters speech to show that they are a gay character. Then I carried out a questionnaire looking at people's viewpoints on how they think gay people speak, if they use complex words and what the main topics of conversation are.
At the moment I'm quite stuck on getting it tied down with a title as well as finding a good study. I was told not to look at Lakoff's research as it is out of date, I've looked at Tannen's report and rapport talk between men and women but I don't think it's strong enough research.
Any advice would be really useful.
