Audience Markers Exercise

Dec 2012: Exercise retired. See AudienceMarkersExercise1

Start a new page on your own wikiname page: AudienceMarkersExercise - followed by your name.

Use the two texts below, and make some notes towards an analysis on each under the headings that Myers uses in chap 6:

footing
address
pronouns
referring to the audience
questions and directives
enacting conversational interaction
implicature
politeness
expectations and knowledge

FromTheHuffingtonPost
Worthless grammar edicts from Harvard from The Language Log

You can copy and paste the texts into your own page, then edit, rearrange, and mark them up as you need. You're aiming for an analysis, so take the balcony stance, be neutral, fair, and complete. Focus on what's happening in the text rather than on gut reactions.
