Spoken discourse analysis
Paper details:
The writing requires three elements.
1.transcribe spoken data consistently using a transcriiption key; A one-minute speech is selected in Appendix A, and the writing is analyzed only for the selected one-minute speech. (where Appendix A-(2) is the recording; Appendix A-(1) is the text version of the recording)
2.analyse spoken data using two approaches covered in the Appendix B; There are many methods of analysis in Appendix B, and only two of them were selected for spoken data analysis. (The analysis process is written as a table like Appendix C-(3), Appendix C-(4)Appendix C-(5) Appendix C-(6). The tables are placed after the text and before the references and appendixes)
3.critically evaluate the use of different approaches for discourse analysis.Write about 2,500 words of discourse analysis methods in the main text section (you can refer to Appendix C-(1) Appendix C-(2))

INSTRUCTIONS You will be given a set of spoken data. You need to choose a 1-minute section of this data, transcribe and analyse the data using two of the following approaches – Conversational Analysis / Pragmatics / Speech Function Network. The analysis should be explained in the main body of the assessment, with examples from the analysis given to back up claims made about the discourse. The main body should be 2,500 words (10% over / under the word limit is allowed). You will then need to critically evaluate the discourse analysis approaches you used with reference to academic literature (where appropriate). The transcriiption and the coded discourse analysis should be presented in the appendix.

accurately analyse the spoken data using the chosen approaches; make valid claims about the spoken data on the basis of the analysis; critically evaluate the two discourse analysis approaches used with reference to literature; clearly present the transcriiption, transcriiption key and analysis in the appendix; express your ideas in a well-structured manner, in an appropriate tone, free of language errors, without plagiarism.

You should be able to make claims about the discourse based on this analysis, taking into account the context which the discourse is in. You should also explain clearly how you carried out each analysis, explaining where you had difficulties making coding decisions and how you overcame these difficulties. The claims about the discourse you make in the assignment should be backed up with evidence from the analysis in the main body of the assignment. You should also have a clearly presented appendix section showing the analysis that you did. Finally, an evaluation of the different methods should be included which is nuanced and supported by reference to academic literature.

student will complete one 2,500-word assessment (10% over or under the word limi t is allowed). This will involve transcribing and analysing spoken data using different frameworks and crit ically evaluating their use. The word limit does not include the references and appendixes.
