I’m working on a Powerpoint writing question and need support to help me understand better.

U214 B TMA

Semester 1, 2020-2021

Cut-off date: Week 11

length :1500-2000 words

Areas of discussing the TMA’s topic are related to U214B Course Book 2 Communicating in English, and particularly unit 1.

Important Guidelines

Discussing the TMA’s subject matter has to draw on the following ideas:

• An introduction to gender differences and the conversational behavior of men and women citing examples from different contexts (5 pts)

• Lakoff’s observations and argument. Flaws in Lakoff’s propositions (5 pts)

• Cameroon’s discourse analysis and proposed argument (5 pts)

• Dominance or difference? Your personal view supported by explanatory evidence (5 pts)

N.B. Students need to read in depth the concerned material and think about the TMA questions as they read. Students need to take notes from the reading material and cite examples where appropriate.

When writing, you need to pay attention to structure, layout and correct language and use appropriate referencing and citation. Please note that, in addition to the textbook materials, you are strongly recommended to consult two or more of the following references.

Recommended Bibliography

Using the e-library on campus:

• You can include information from the course book but it is highly recommended to use external sources from the e-library.

• You are requested to visit the e-library on campus and use it to carry out your TMAs properly.

• You are also requested to show your tutor that you used the e-library to complete your TMA. But avoid submitting a copy/paste paper, it is a plagiarized work, which is strictly banned and firmly penalized by AOU.

The following are guidelines on plagiarism:

If you submit an assignment that contains work other than yours without acknowledging the sources, you are committing plagiarism. This might occur when:

• Using a sentence or phrase that you have come across

• Copying word-for-word directly from a text

• Paraphrasing the words from the text very closely

• Using text downloaded from the Internet

• Borrowing statistics or assembled fact from another person or source

• Copying or downloading figures, photographs, pictures or diagrams without acknowledging your sources

• Copying from the notes or essays of a fellow student

(Slightly adapted from OU document on quoting versus plagiarism)

It is important to remember that plagiarism is strictly barred and would be subject to punitive action by the Arab Open University.

 

Question

Several studies have looked into how gender and talk are related. Chapter 1 in U214 Course Book provides a sociolinguistic perspective that relates conversation styles to social factors. Explain the arguments provided by Goodwin, Lakoff and Cameron that attempt to explain communicative styles of men and women. Use examples from your own context to support your discussion and conclude with your opinion on the matter.
