Student or Learner
I am doing an MA in BSL/English and need to do an analysis on my spoken English.
I am struggling to find a list of features to mark my studies against.
I currently have
scripts and schemas
non fluency markers
Is this acceptable or am I way off track??
I really appreciate your help so thanks in advance
Well, You seem to be on the right tack;you may add "Facial expressions and body language"to the list. Also, it is evident that spoken English has its own grammar, ellipsis being a main feature: Want a drink? rather than Do you want a drink? I suggest you have a look into the pragmatic aspects of spoken English as well. Good luck with your work!
