    Language in Context

    Hi :)
    Can you please tell me something about labels - functions, I have some statements below which I think I have identified correctly but I can't find anything in my text books about this subject eg:-
    Hey Bob - seeking attention
    Yeah - acknowledgement
    Can you give me a hand - request for assistance
    Sorry I'm Busy - rejection of the request
    OK. Never mind - acceptance of the rejection

    Many Thanks in advance
