please help me to find:
1. the functions of register in sport especially in football
2. how to analyze register? especially in sport.
i am confuse about that term...and i really need information about it
We can say that register refers to:
1. varying degrees of formality and informality (social register: sex, age, social class...).
2. Special language (jargon) which varies from discipline to discipline (discipline oriented register: the language of law/medicine...)
the register is studied in sociolinguistics . you're looking for the register of football it can include player,goalkeeper;stadium;ball... all these words belong to the same register which is football.
