1,Phonology(including paralanguage:intonation,volume,speed,pitch,etc.)

2. Vocabulary(the use of distinctive words,including slang,obscenity,and profanity)

3. Grammar(the use of standard vs. non-standard grammar)

4. Communicative style and manner(See Communicative Contexts below)

Here are some specific language-related issues you might think about:

A. National dialects(British,American,Australian,other)

B. Regional dialects in the US(including New York City,New Jersey,Philadelphia,Appalachia,Coastal South,etc.)

Be sure to identify the television episode or movie clip that you’ve analyzed

If your clip is on YouTube,be sure to send an e-mail message with the URL that will open your clip online.(without a clip,no evaluation of your analysis will be possible)

A video clip on Netflix or Hulu will also be OK,just provide a citation for the specific scene you’ve analyzed。If the clip isnt accessible on-line,you may submit a DVD instead.
