We began with an exercise of telling what was outside our classroom door. We went on to discuss the readings from Crystal and Locke. Class discourse explored the concepts of "grooming" "strokes" "status" "rank" and the ability to use language in a special way so as to achieve status or provide strokes. Please post your notes on this discussion and the manner in which these concepts inform our developing inquiry into a grammar for storytelling.
