    Re: help

    Your question is unclear. Can you provide examples and then ask about them?

    Re: help

    A language has different styles such as ( formal,informal, direct, polite..) and the styles differ from one context to the other ( I mean by the context , the topic, the reason... ). The reason behind my question is how to link between the style and the context.
    If we take a doctor out side his/her work and meet one of his/her patient how the conversation will be? will he/she talk the same way, or his/her style will change.

    Re: help

    Now I see what you are considering. The answer is a mixture. In most cases it will depend upon the individuals and their previous contacts. A professional person, say a consultant, may wish to remain on a professional basis when meeting a patient in a social context. It will always be the more important role that decides whether to relax and treat the other on a more informal basis.

    There are some 'hidden' barriers that most people recognise, but in general most contacts are more informal nowadays unless there is a serious side to any discussion. Meeting a senior policeman can be difficult as he may change his approach depending upon whether any of his junior ranks are present.

    The greatest difficulty is for someone like your local GP. They are always busy, under pressure and taking up some of their precious time on inconsequential matters can be annoying. Every patient, except in the surgery consultation, should recognise that their GP may be happy to acknowledge a passing 'hello' and not to involve the GP in chat.

    Are there any specific examples that wish to have some advice on?
