communication styles

The eassy communication styles, by Deborah Tanen poiont out the difference betwwen men's and women's communication styles. Tannen noticed these differences when he broke the class into small groups to discuss the issues raised in the readings and to analyze their own conversational transcripts. Tannen observed that,some of sudents said that they preferred the same-gender groups; others preferred the same-style groups. And he commented,"No one's converstional style is absoulte; eveyone's style changes in response to the context and others' styles."

  1. I think that is a good quote. That no one can have know an absolute style of communicating and that every boy and girls ways will vary.
