Introduction

´╗┐English Essay Compare the ways in which the relationship between the mother and daughter is presented in text A and text B. Text A is a transcript of a mother and daughter-playing scrabble. Analysing the ways in which they speak and interact with each other can make judgements about the nature of their relationship. It is a close relationship conversation and only made for a small audience. In contrast, text B is an extract from a newspaper article. It is more difficult to make accurate judgements about the nature of the mother and daughters relationship because the information is presented from a third party perspective. Where direct speech is included, the comments reported are only from the mother, the daughter?s opinion or perspective is not presented. From reading the two texts the relations come across as very different. ...read more.

Middle

The short sentences ?It wasn?t a one night stand? and ?she?s a little comedian? creates a friendly tone and the short sentences show it is nothing serious and how they have a close relationship. Another main similarity, which occurs in both texts, is the informal language from the speakers; this again shows the close relationship between the mother and daughter in each text. From studying text A we can see expressions such as ?it?s Ok? and ?yeah?, we can also see utterances such as ?oh god? which also shows the informality of the language from each speaker. This is also shown through text B where the mother is evidently shown using colloquial expressions such as ?she?d been dating the guy? and ?get her on the pill?. However from studying both texts it is evidently that the mothers and daughters relationship is a lot different. ...read more.

Conclusion

Also another difference, which is clearly evident, is from text A, the mother and daughter have a happy relationship and enjoy spending time with each other. It is shown through text A through the mother and daughter playing a game of scrabble as they are spending time with each other. However from reading text B the mother and daughter try to avoid spending time with each other. The mother is quoted saying ?I don?t see the point in punishing her. If I ground her, I?m just punishing myself because I have to put up with her in the house?. This shows how the mother and daughter try to avoid the two spending time with each other and how the mother directs her daughter and encourages her to go out on the streets. From reading the two texts it is clear that there are differences between them both but there are many similarities, which are shown in both texts through the way in which the relationship of the mother and daughter are shown. ...read more.
