A comparative approach to conjuncts in written and spoken English
GRIN Verlag, 2007 - 28 pages
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Linguistik, Note: 2,3, Universitat Potsdam, Veranstaltung: Seminar: 'Adverbs and Adverbial', 5 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: An identical spoken and written language would be practically intolerable. If we spoke as we write we should find no one to listen: and if we write as we speak we should find no one to read. The spoken and written language must not be too near together, as they must not be too far apart. (T.S. Eliot) Speech and writing have different features. The paper explores different conjuncts concerning the usage in spoken and written English. The paper analyses the variation of conjuncts in speech and writing to understand the differences in usage."
