Similarities and Differences: Finish for homework

Now that we have examined transcripts of both spoken and multi-modal (Instant Messaging-based) conversations we are able to draw some conclusions about the similarities and differences between these. As the transcripts are both largely of informal, spontaneous communication, they do have many features in common, however there are still features of language that are inherently characteristic of each mode (spoken and written) that distinguish them.

This day’s task (to be finished for homework) is to begin to analyse these similarities and differences.
