Question description

Assignment #2

Pay special attention to people around you using the word dude. It can also be a situation where you are using it with friends and your friends are using it when addressing you. Write down those conversations; short dialogues and the context in which the word was used. Who was using the word and whom they were addressing (pay attention to the context and note the gender, age, social status such as a student, for example). After you read the article by Scott Kiesling, ”Dude,” answer the following questions: Was the word used to create camaraderie or distance, disgust, friendship, masculinity (for women as well) or something else entirely? It is also important data, if you do not overhear people using the word dude very much. In that case, pay special attention, if there is another word used instead. If yes, do you think that substitute word has the same, similar, or entirely different function that the word dude? Describe what that function might be? Are women using something different than men?
