Structuring your essay
When preparing notes for this assignment from Chapters 1 and 5, you may want to consider the topic in
terms of similarities and differences between the two types of discourse. When looking for similarities, you could note down aspects from both chapters on how style (including code switching) is affected by context and the importance of shared knowledge. You may compare the roles of status differences and gender in work-related discourse and everyday conversation. You could also consider the potential for misunderstandings between people from different cultural or social backgrounds. In terms of differences between the two types of discourse, Chapter 1 discusses some of the special features of everyday conversation, while Chapter 5 provides you with information on the specialized contexts, relationships and knowledge and jargon associated with work. An important aspect discussed in Chapter 5 is the concept of ‘discourse community’ and the development of new varieties or genres of spoken English in the workplace.
The explanation above suggests that your assignment will probably be organized into two major parts.
You might first describe the similarities between the two discourses and then the second half of the
essay would concentrate on their differences. Make sure you provide sufficient examples to illustrate
these similarities and differences, either from your own ‘English in use’ file or from the readings.
Remember to leave enough space for a brief introduction and a conclusion drawing together the points
that you have made and summarizing the similarities and differences. Finally, you should list the sources you have drawn on in a reference list. As in previous assignments, proper citations and a bibliography are required.
You must try to write your answer within the word limit. Marks will be deducted for excessively long
