This is final assignment for a subject named: Trans-cultural communication at work, for PhD degree in applied linguistics.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY. THIS IS THE MAIN DESCRIPTION OF THE ASSIGNMENT.
KINDLY, PAY ATTENTION TO ALL THE ATTACHED FILES ESPECIALLY THE POWERPOINT SLIDES WHICH CONTAIN ALL THE NECESSARY EXPLANATION AND THE INFORMATION NEEDED FOR DOING THE ASSIGNMENT.
NOTE THAT ALL THE REFERENCES THAT YOU NEED TO PERFECTLY DO THE ASSIGNMENT CAN BE FOUND IN TWO PLACES. FIRST, IN THE ATTACHED LIST OF REFERENCES. SECOND, AT THE END OF EACH SLIDE (POWERPOINT FILES)
ALSO PAY ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING ATTACHED FILE AND THEIR DESCRIPTION AS BELOW:
I have uploaded with this order the following files:
A- The assignment’s detailed description and criteria that MUST be met.
B- Mp3 file contains the video which you need to analyse (the conversation).
C- A transcription of the video to help the writer to analyse the features of communication. (NOTE THAT I HAVE NUMBERED EACH LINE IN THE DIALOUGUE IN THE TRANSCRIPTION SO THAT THE WRITER NEEDS ONLY TO REFER TO THE LINE NUMBER WITHOUT QUOATING ANY PHRASE FROM THE TRANSCRIPTION- UNLESS IT IS NECESSARY.)
D- An example of a written paper for the same assignment which was submitted by previous student in the same assignment, the same course, and to the same professor. This paper was graded very badly, but I have uploaded to you to help the writer and give him some information about how is the assignment. The writer can use the references in this assignment but he must add more references and some changes in the references list to avoid similarities.
E- I will upload a list of references (these list of references includes the exact number of the helpful pages) that the writer will need to get the idea of the topic, and it will help him to do the analysis. He should use some of these references and he can add some other references from the lists at the end of each PowerPoint file.
F- All the PowerPoint slides for the course which contain all the information you need to understand the topic and do the analysis. The slides contain all the description and the theories for the analysis. Moreover, at the end of each PowerPoint file there is a list of references that you need for more analysis information.
The assignment should be done as follow:
1- The assignment’s idea is to analyse the conversation between the two persons in the video (Mp4 file) according to the theories in the filed of trans-cultural communication at work.
2- A transcription of the video will be also attached to the order.
3- You need to concentrate your analysis on three of the following features:
A- Creating rapport
B- Non-verbal forms of communication including silence
C- Face and politeness
D- Power and solidarity
However, you need to write and mention the other remaining two features if they are existed in the dialogue in the video interaction. You do not have to write too much about these two. It will be enough to mention them and analyse them slightly. You need of course to support the analysis by theories.
4- For each feature analysis, you should first identify where each feature has occurred in the text (in the transcript: namely to determine which lines), justify it and analyse it, and then discuss it according to the theories in the trans-cultural communication.
5- Each feature should be analysed under a separate subtitle.
6- You should focus on a detailed analysis of the segments you select (segments from the conversation for each feature). You should draw on trans-cultural communication theories from relevant literature.
After providing all these information I DO expect high quality work.
