What do you know about text talk

Watch the short extracts from Towie and Made in Chelsea and note down HOW the characters speak. Try to use some of the words you have just learnt to help you.

What do you notice about the way they talk to each other and the words they use? Which social influences and contextual variations did you observe?

SOCIOLECT are varieties of language used by particular social groups.

Sharing a sociolect gives them a sense of identity.

“OMG, BRB”

“jel”

“Somethink, dunno, nuffin”

What I think about my idiolect

My idiolect

A southern accent either makes us sound posh or common- we can’t win!

I like using new and trendy words that adults don’t use

I hate my accent it is so boring!

Mrs Cook


What do you know about text talk

Task

  • Write a letter/ diary extract/ postcard which uses your own idiolect.

  • Swap with a partner and consider:

    What does the idiolect suggest about you?

    When is it appropriate, or not, to use these words?

    Alight mummykins!

    Hols r fab but the weather is mad. The food is well rank and I was like no way am I gunna eat that!

Mrs Cook

If someone sent you this text, how would you respond?

  • Apple and Pears

Mrs Cook


What affects our speech accent

What affects our speech/accent?

You might move to another part of the country or go to university and come across a mix of accents. This might cause you to change your speech to fit in.

Geography

You might end up speaking in a stronger regional accent, or using words that you normally wouldn’t, because you are imitating people off the TV.

Media

Mrs Cook


What does slang suggest or imply about the user

What does slang suggest or imply about the user?

  • Slang is informal and colloquial

  • Often inventive and creative

  • People give new meaning to existing words

  • Existing words are often shortened (‘having a mare’)

  • New words are invented (that happened yonks ago)

  • People often use slang to seem rebellious, cool or to talk about taboo subjects.

  • Some slang words are understood everywhere- swear words

  • Some are specific to regions

  • Slang helps identify social groups

  • Slang can quickly transfer between cultures (American slang etc)

  • People vary their slang depending on who they are talking to

  • Slang goes out of fashion and start to sound dated (dweeb)

Ellipsis= where words are missed out ‘want to come out’ instead of ‘do you...’

Elision= slurring words together ‘gonna’

Which of these statements are positive and which are negative factors?

Mrs Cook


How many different accents and dialects can you think of

How many different accents and dialects can you think of?

Accent: the specific way words are pronounced according to geographical region. For example, Geordie.

Dialect: the language variety of a geographical region or social background. Different forms of grammar, lexis, phonology and semantics affect dialect.

Standard English: This is a dialect which has acquired the status of representing the English language. It is the ‘proper’ or ‘correct’ way to speak.

Introduction

Text language has evolved rapidly over recent years with trillions of text messages sent each year. Until recently, text messages were relatively expensive to send and so users have developed various techniques to reduce the number of characters per text to ensure they are paying as little as possible. This report will investigate the effects of these devices with text messages as well as trying establish whether there is a link between the way people text and they way they speak. I will take into account the contextual and social aspects, such as age, gender and occupation for instance, which may affect how language is to help me explore some of the public attitudes to texting.

  • Introduction: Briefly say what the topic of this essay is about (use the words in the title to help you) and what data you have gathered. You need to make sure you BRIEFLY introduce the social and contextual variations that affect text talk.

  • Section 2:

  • Mention that there are patterns of text that are common to all, texting also varies according to the context and with whom we are communicating with. This is the part where you refer to public attitudes of people who use text speak. Refer directly to the articles you have read, quoting where possible.

  • Section 3:

  • Write about your analysis of texting, this can include:

  • naming/describing the type of texts you have analysed during lessons and possibly at home

  • When you completed the activity based on the ages of people who send/receive texts, what specific features do older generations recognize? Explain why they know these features by giving examples and by using quotes from the texts you have studied. Explain which features of testing older generations struggled with then explain why you think this is by using examples and quotes taken from the texts you have studied.

  • Section 4:

  • In comparison, what are the negative areas of texting that newer generations (those who have used texting since childhood) have experienced? Refer to examples/quotes taken from the texts that you have studied to support your ideas.

  • Conclusion:

  • Briefly summarize your main findings and provide a personal opinion supporting or disagreeing with some of the points raised in section 2.

What do you know about text talk

Explores the features of the language used in digital communications which suggest that they are closer to spoken rather than written language

  • How does the language in each text reflect the person who is texting?

  • What type of language features are used that give an indication of the type of phone used?

  • How does the language reflect the person being texted? What does it show us about their relationship?

  • How does the language in each text show that their text is more like speech?

Explores the features of the language used in digital communications which suggest that they are closer to spoken rather than written language

  • Point- what are you trying to say? Link to device used.

  • Evidence- select a good example from the text

  • Explain what the devices says about the texter and their relationship with the other texter. Discuss in detail the different reasons they might have used these devices.

  • Explore and describe how these devices show that people try to text in a way that mimics speech.

  • Explore the issue- what are other people’s attitudes about texting in this way? Is it a good thing or a bad thing?

Another device used in data set 1 is phonetic spelling of “kewl” and “fink”. By using this sound representation, the text appears as 'Young’ and ‘slanguage’ and something that an older texter wouldn’t send due to how they may be perceived. During my research, a common response from the older generation was that ‘bad’ spelling in text messages creates a negative impression of the texter and so this is therefore more likely to be sent by a teenager. This is reinforced by the deliberate spellings of ‘fink’ and ‘kewl’ to stress the accent and so suggests a shared idiolect between the two texters which ultimately suggests that they are from the same social circle.This text message appears closer to spoken language than written because….

How other characters react

Alternative impression of character

Audience impression of character

Officer – good humouredly. Other suspect is irritated and calls him a “moron.”

(E)

Shy and nervous. The pause and filler show he is hesitating. Reluctant to give the information to the officer.

Pause and filler could show he’s looking for alternative answer – a believable lie but is unable to, under pressure.

Comparison to real life

65% of those questioned were intimidated by the police. Perhaps Gary answers in a hesitant way because he’s scared.
