    Story
    (32)

    The following series of lectures draws on linguistics, or the scientific study of language, to show the many ways in which language has a profound effect upon human relationships. These lectures address the various aspects and implications of what Professor Tannen calls "conversational style". It also looks at the dynamics of specific situations such as the workplace and classroom where the role of conversational style is of particular importance.

    "Awful"
    Overall

    This is pseudo-scholarship at its worst. I was very disappointed to learn the lectures were by the woman who wrote the awful book, "you just don't understand" but thought I would give give it a short since I'd paid for it. It was just as bad as her book. This woman shamelessly perverts science. She creates untestable hypotheses which would make Freud blush. She even begins with an idle boast that she "saved a marriage" of a student through her course. She then proceeds to insult our intelligence with conversation analysis that a ten year-old could constuct if they were forced to waste their time that way. I am shocked this woman is alongside excellent scholars on the other lectures in this series.
