Week 5 Terminology

Closed Question A question asked in such a way that offers the respondent only a limited choice of possible answers. Usually " yes" or "no" or a one word answer. Example: Do you like cheese? Yes
Open Question A question phrased in an open ended way so that the respondent can answer in a wide range of ways. Example: What sort of food do you like?
Rhetorical Question A question that implies its own answer and is used not to elicit information bu to achieve a persuasive effect. Example: Are we to stand idly by while our rights are trampled by a dictator?
Tag Question A phrase added on to the end of a statement to turn it into a question Example: We're going to the zoo today, aren't we? "right", "yeah", or "OK" can also be used with the same function: See you at sevenish, yeah?
Side Sequence A sequence of utterances inserted into a conversation, which causes the main topic of the conversation to be temporarily suspended. Often unrelated to the topic itself/ only slightly connected- a diversion from topic
Rhetoric The technique of using language persuasively in order to influence the opinions and behaviour of an audience
Repair A self correction in spontaneous speech. Can be done because you may realise that what you are about to say could could offence, so you adapt and amend your language accordingly.
Utterance A unit of spoken language, the end of which is indicated by a pause/ change of speaker. This term is often used to describe a " spoken sentence" as an utterance may not follow the expectations and grammatical conventions of a written sentence.
Phatic Utterance Words spoken to establish social contact and express friendly intentions towards another person, rather than to convey significant information. Example: Nice day today
