Register and Changing Context of Language

-Dramatic Reading of a Real Break-Up Letter
-Register definition and handout
-Rewriting the Break-Up Letter for a new register (change at least one component of register)


For the situation and the variations, identify the three components of register in each.  Briefly bullet point or explain how the communication in each would change.

Situation:  A student in his final year at school is discussing his poor grades in a formal meeting with his teacher.

Variation 1: A husband and wife are discussing the poor grades of their son in an e-mail exchange.

Variation 2: A student is discussing his poor grades with his girlfriend on the telephone.
