Linguistic Style and Repertoire

Lecture no. 18 from the course: Language and Society: What Your Speech Says About You

Linguistic Style and Repertoire

Taught by Professor Valerie Fridland | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Observe how we all have a linguistic repertoire that allows us to vary our speech according to the situation or to present a certain identity. Note how we switch between different social roles, and how each role actually requires a corresponding linguistic expression. Study how our professional occupations significantly affect speaking style.
