This week you’re reading two analyses of how speech genres are performed: Irvine (1974) and Jones (2012). To apply these readings, you will analyze a performance genre: African-American comedians imitating white people. Begin by viewing the following two clips, then address the questions below. For each response, illustrate with examples from one or both clips.
What linguistic features (e.g., word choice; phonological shift) are used to create the persona of “white people”?
What nonverbal features are used to create the persona of “white people”?
For each feature you identify, explain what meaning(s) are being created.
