Transcript of Slang

Spoken Language Slang Silent Tasks 1. Think about the way you speak. How does your speech change around different people?

2. Think of as many sayings as you can that your parents say a lot. List them.

3. Think of a friend. Do they have a phrase or saying that they use a lot? What is Slang for? 1. It is subversive and therefore reflects a desire to rebel against the norms of society.

2. It expresses membership of a social group and excludes those outside of it.

3. It can be used for humour or to assert power. Fæder ure þu þe eart on heofonum;

Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.

Due Thursday The Way We Speak LO: To understand how the way we and others speak can both include and exclude. He sounds dumb! She talks all posh Fresh! Challenge... Think about why people talk differently.

There are 10 main factors that influence the way we speak. In pairs try to list all of them in your books. But of course... We don't use the same speech in every situation. Idiolect A variety of language that is unique to a person, as manifested by the patterns of vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation that he or she uses. E.g. A boy in Year 7 used to start everything he said with the word 'basically'. This is a part of his idiolect, his individual way of using the English language when speaking. Copy and complete your own 'Idiolect Chart'
Add some more locations and people. "Size matters not, ... Look at me. Judge me by size, do you?"

"Try not. Do or do not, there is no try."

"Always in motion is the future."

"Help you I can, yes." Just to bring it back to Star Wars... Yoda's Idiolect Dialect/Sociolect Language Idiolect Accent and Dialect LO: To be able to explain the difference between accent, dialect and Standard English.

Student... Model Answer LO: To be able to understand the requirements of the Spoken Language Controlled Assessment. Planning Your question is about how your language changes in different contexts.

In pairs, list as many reasons as you can for why you would change the way you speak in different situations. Next, write down 3 different situations where your talk changes significantly. Write these as subheadings, leaving 6 lines between each one.

Ideas: At home with parents (especially useful if you are part of a multilingual family), grandparents, friends, headteacher, people you meet for the first time, religious leaders, girls/boys you fancy,any others you can think of. Some ideas:

To fit in/conform
To show respect/submit to the authority of a powerful person.
To express yourself in a comfortable/relaxed way
To be polite/avoid awkwardness
To give a 'good' impression of yourself Beneath each subheading, list some of the features of your language in these contexts.

e.g. Friends: Slang to conform/express myself naturally, fillers as part of this natural speech and to indicate that my turn is not finished, paralinguistic features such as hand gestures to emphasise what I'm saying and to add energy to the conversation, tag questions to invite my friends to respond to what I'm saying, overlapping and loose turn-taking which makes the conversation flow naturally, exaggerated prosodic features to introduce a sense of humour and liveliness. Controlled Assessment Things to Remember:

1. Paragraph your work. Each section should be divided by a full line. The paragraphs within a section should start on the next line and a few spaces in.

2. You do not need to list as many features as you can. Pick two/three features for each section

3. The higher marks are gained from your explanations. So... Identify a feature you use in a particular situation, give an example of how you use this feature and then explain why you use it in full.

e.g. One reason I think I use this feature is because... Another reason might be that I... I wouldn't use this if I were talking to... because...

4. If you have written transcripts, you can use this as evidence of how your speech changes in different situations. If not, you must write the examples you use in a list on a separate page.
Explore some aspects of the ways your speech changes according to the context you are in.
Work in silence. Raise your hand if you need to ask something.
