Use the transcript on the PowerPoint file linked here to create a presentation illustrating as many features of speech as you can.
In the light of a couple of email questions, can I emphasise that you are required to illustrate (that is, identify and comment on) those features of speech that you can identify in the transcript itself. Ideally you will make analytical comments explaining how the features of speech are being used by the speakers, and recognising that often there will be more than one interpretation. The ideal method is to use boxes for comments with arrows pointing to the relevant bit of the text (or use the ‘callout’ feature in the ‘autoshapes’ menu of PowerPoint). You will probably need to copy and paste the text onto several slides / pages so that you can deal with different aspects of the etxt without it getting too cluttered. For example you might have one slide on turn-taking / adjacency pairs; another on non-fluency features; another on pragmatic features (Grice’s maxims, politeness and face etc), and so on.
You should right-click the link, choose ‘save target as…’ then choose where on the computer you want the file to be saved. Name the file (Yourname)-speechanalysis, so that I can recognise it when I have all the files on my own computer.
If you have problems with PowerPoint you can do the task using Word. The document is here.
You may find it helpful to make use of some of the resources on the ‘Language of Speech’ page (linked from the sidebar).
Email your finished presentation to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any problems with this, please contact me before the weekend. Feel free to email me work that you’ve only done part of, or ideas you’ve had, to check you are on the right track. I want the finished work to be with me by 10pm on Sunday at the latest.
