4. May I ask the reason?
5. Find that girl for me. As a favour.
6. Why don't you lend Tom a few pounds, Bob?
b) Identify the probable function of each of the following utterances:
1. Have a chocolate biscuit.
2. Ring Bob and tell him to come here.
3. Come on, darling, help me clear the table.
4. Buzz off before I call the police.
