Classroom talk: a socio linguistic study
Stubbs, Michael W.
This study analyses aspects of teaching as a speech event, using naturalistic data collected by participant observation and audio-reocordlng in classroom settings. It uses sociolinguistic concepts to analyse teachers' talk) and uses the classroom as a focus for developing sociolinguistic theory on conversational data collected in a well-defined social setting. The work is explicitly interdisciplinary, integrating concepts from different academic fields.
