Conversation Analysis: Conversational Implicature and Contextualization Cues
Discourse Analysis Assignment Double Spaced in APA 7th Reference page is a 4th page Must utilize academic voice. (Links to an external site.) Must include an introduction and conclusion paragraph. Introduction paragraph needs to end with a clear thesis statement that indicates the purpose of paper Please watch the clip of Seinfeld – The Keys (Do You Ever Yearn?) Politeness Theory (Links to an external site.) and Pragmatics and Gricean Maxims write a paper exploring the notion of discourse as a social practice by analyzing a conversation between two speakers. You will consider how speakers’ intentions shape discourse, how hearers interpret metacommunicative signals, and how both speakers and audiences contextualize what they say and hear. Apply Grice’s cooperative principle and the four maxims to the conversation. Where do you see examples of quantity, quality, relation, and manner? Where do you see any of the maxims violated? Apply Lakoff’s rules of politeness to the conversation. Where are they maximized or violated? Do any utterances in the exchange provide examples of positive face, negative face, or face-threatening acts? Analyze two contextualization cues or discourse markers that contribute to the speakers’ meaning(s). Evaluate two rhetorical strategies used by the speakers that contribute to their persuasiveness. Assess the ways in which the discourse is a performance or a verbal art. Consider the aesthetic nature of the discourse and of the hearer’s response. Evaluate the interplay between intention and interpretation in the conversation. What is each speaker’s intention? Is the speaker interpreted correctly? Why or why not? Please read and incorporate a relative paraphrase that is cited with in the paper from the following paragraph: Culture‐specific language ideology may make purpose more or less relevant to how people produce and interpret discourse in particular situations and settings. In Western societies, very broadly speaking, the process of languaging is often understood as explicitly goal‐directed, and it often strikes us as appropriate to query a speaker’s intentions and to use motive to account for text. The question “What are you trying to accomplish by saying this?” is frequent and useful in a US fiction‐writing workshop, for example. Political speeches, advertising campaigns, and many other genres of discourse are judged by what they were intended to do and whether they succeeded in fulfilling their producers’ purposes. As I wrote this textbook, I thought constantly about what I wanted it to look like, sound like, be structured, and be used for, and how I hoped it would influence people. Whether they are aware of it or not, what speakers, hearers, and audiences are trying to accomplish often has something to do with what their language is like. Johnstone, B. (2017).
