Early within the twenty first century, numerous hundred million copies of Microsoft PowerPoint have been turning out trillions of slides each one year.

Alas, slideware usually reduces the analytical caliber of shows. specifically, the preferred PowerPoint templates (ready-made designs) frequently weaken verbal and spatial reasoning, and commonly corrupt statistical research. what's the challenge with PowerPoint? and the way do we increase our displays?

3). In order to pinpoint the function of markers, she (1987: 24-29) proposes a discourse model containing five planes of analysis:18 1) Exchange structure, which accounts for the mechanics of turn-taking (cf. Sacks et al. 1974); 2) Action structure, which accounts for the sequencing of speech acts; 3) Ideational structure, which accounts for the relationship between propositions; 4) Participation framework, which accounts for the way interlocutors relate to each other and to their utterances; and 5) Information state, which concerns the organization and management of various kinds of knowledge.

There does not, then, seem to be decisive arguments for considering interjections as irrelevant to linguistics, and the relative neglect of of these items in the literature may be attributed in part to the written-language bias of much of modern linguistics, and in part (as pointed out by Ehlich 1986: 20) to the fact that the emotive character of many interjections is hard to reconcile with the general orientation of linguists towards representational uses of language.
