    Default Re: Discourse analysis, pragmatic, jargon..questions?

    Thank you so much Kon. You want to say that pragmatics has a particular time,place, number and person while Discourse analysis is not as pragmatics. Yes? If it is so, I completely get it. so;

    Pragmatics;
    -concrete
    -general
    -particular time, place, number
    ----------------------------------

    Discourse analysis;

    -Abstract
    -more general
    -not to do with place, number, time

    Did I write correctly?

    according to Raymott,
    "Register is a style that you have used in a certain situation".......
    So can we use "style" instead of "register"?

    Well, then I can't explain why they use similar examples to illustrate these different concepts.

    Yes, on the whole, that's a good start.

    I don't think it's a style, he was just making it easy for you by simplifying.

    Register is like clothing -- the same person can wear bed clothes, a jogging suit, work attire, formal wear, a wedding dress.... many levels.

    Register is like that, the different levels of formality we "wear" for a time. Each is appropriate in a certain situation.

    Yes, I was. Register is different from style if both words are used technically. I was using "style" colloquially.

    Speaking of technicalities, jargon as a linguistic term is not pejorative.

    It is here, and in much of the English-speaking world. Here are the web definitions from google:

    define: jargon - Google Search
