I have looked at how characters are able to gain topic control and how turn taking associates to politeness.

The way how the language is used within a social context is the study of discourse and when the language is acknowledged in context it evolves into understanding that communication is more 'than just grammar and lexis' as North (2012) points out. Whether it is written or spoken when it is employed in real life situations, language has a function irrespective of its form. Also, different registers are applied in different backgrounds dependently on participants engaged in conversation. Therefore,

Physically, men and women are obviously different; that is, men have a larger head and longer vocal cords than women do. From this point, women are stereotyped as being weak, subordinate, and minority in society. Moreover, in Lakoff’s study Language and Woman’s Place, she claims it does not matter whether women talk the way they are supposed and expected to do or not. “If they talk like a lady, they are ridiculed and thought that they are unable to think clearly and participate in a serious discussion
