I need to find evidence in some data that shows childrens awareness of recipient design. What I really want to know is do you just write down like an essay or is there a set way to do it. The lines are'nt numbered do you number them your self???

hi,sooo glad you dont need help with the content

i suppose the way you choose to write it depends on its :are you going to be expected to analyse child lang data in your job and write reports [thats my only experience] in which case id say an essay style is appropriate.

i dont know of any special way to write such assignments [thats not to say there isnt one] you could break the title down into its component parts,and address each seperately.including an intro and/or clinical/relevant implications.

with regard to the sample,you should number every utterance that the child [and adult?] makes and then you can quote/cite the numbers [in brackets]in the text of your essay...and attach the numbered data in your appendix.

mmm??..hope this helps a bit x
