- First, choose to focus on one participant’s communicative dilemma between 2 identities they portrayed in this interaction. Name each identity and explain why these two identities are in tension with each other and how they pose a communicative dilemma for the person you chose to focus on in this interaction analysis paper. [Note: you need to provide a clear statement about what is the communicative dilemma faced by this participant in this conversation by pointing out these two identities in tension with each other and how they are tied to competing discourse practices]
- Identify and define at least 6 discourse practices that used by the participant to perform the 2 identities that are in tension with each other (3 discourse practices for each identity you labelled in the paper assignment Part 1).
- Reflect on the communicative dilemma this participant faces due to these two identities being in tension and discuss how well the speaker managed the dilemma using discourse practices. Drawing upon the rhetorical and cultural perspectives from this class (Note: you are also expected to explain these two perspectives in your paper), you can discuss whether the discourse practices used by this speaker are effective and/or appropriate in managing this communicative dilemma s/he faced in this context.
Note: Course concepts should be bolded in the text. (You should define and explain communicative dilemma, rhetorical & cultural perspectives, plus 6 discourse practices in your paper). When you define the concept, you need to either quote or paraphrase from the reading or lecture material, citing it properly according to APA standards. The paper should be 5-6 double-spaced pages (plus a reference list on a final separate page in APA format).
