Описание слайда:

Any discussion of English conversation, like any English conversation, must begin with The Weather. Why are they so obsessed with the weather?

Описание слайда:

There is no danger of tornadoes, monsoons, raging blizzards, run-for your-life hailstorms – as with many other countries. Maybe, the English fixation with the weather is less in the phenomena themselves, but in uncertainty…

Описание слайда:

Conversations about the weather are not really about the weather at all: English weather-speak is a form of code, which helps the English to overcome their natural reserve and actually to talk to each other. Oh, isn't it cold? Nice day, isn’t it? = Hello! I’d like to talk to you – will you talk to me?

Описание слайда:

Rule 1: The Reciprocity Rule Comments about the weather have an interrogative intonation – they always require a response. Good morning! It’s a nice day, isn’t it? Beautiful! Do you think it will rain? - I don’t think it will rain today, maybe it will rain tonight.

Описание слайда:

Rule 2: The Context Rule Weather-speak can be used: - as a simple greeting, as an ice-breaker leading to conversation on other matters, as a “filler” or “displacement” subject, when there is an awkward or uncomfortable pause.

Описание слайда:

Rule 3: The Agreement Rule You must never contradict anybody when discussing the weather. George Mikes, the Hungarian humorist If you break the rule on purpose, you will find that the atmosphere becomes rather tense and awkward.

13 слайд Oh, isn’t it cold? Yes, isn’t it? or - Mmm, very cold. - Oh, isn’t it cold?
Описание слайда:

Oh, isn’t it cold? Yes, isn’t it? or - Mmm, very cold. - Oh, isn’t it cold? - No, actually, it’s quite mild.

Описание слайда:

Exceptions to the Agreement Rule You may express personal likes and dislikes that differ from those of your companions, or express your disagreement in terms of personal sensibilities. Oh, isn’t it cold? - Yes, but I really like this sort of weather – quite invigorating, don’t you think? or - Mmm (with nod), but at least it’s not raining.

Описание слайда:

Rule 4: The Weather Hierarchy Rule In descending order, from best to worst, the hierarchy is as follows: sunny and warm/mild, sunny and cool/cold, cloudy and warm/mild, cloudy and cool/cold, rainy and warm/mild, rainy and cool/cold.

Описание слайда:

Awful weather, isn’t it? Yes, but they say it’s going to clear up this afternoon. - Yes, well, they said that yesterday and it poured all day, didn’t it? The main thing is to communicate, to agree, to have something in common; and shared moaning is just as effective in promoting sociable interaction as shared optimism.

Описание слайда:

Rule 5: Snow and the Moderation Rule Snow is not mentioned in the hierarchy partly because it is rare in England, compared to the other types of weather included, which occur all the time, often all in the same day. The only conversational rule that can be applied with confidence to snow is a “moderation rule”: too much snow, like too much of anything, is to be deplored.

Описание слайда:

Rule 6: The Weather-as-family Rule English people treat their weather like a member of their family: one can complain about the behaviour of one's own children, but any hint of censure from an outsider is unacceptable, and very bad manners. That’s why foreigners are not allowed to criticize English weather.

Описание слайда:

Englishman: “Phew, isn't it hot?” Australian: “Call this hot? You should come to Australia if you want to see hot!” The worst possible weather-speak offence is one mainly committed by foreigners - to belittle the English weather.

Описание слайда:

The English become extremely touchy and defensive at any suggestion that their weather is not interesting. Indeed, the weather may be one of the few things about which the English are still unselfconsciously and unashamedly patriotic.

Описание слайда:

The Shipping Forecast Ritual It is an off-shore weather forecast, with additional information about wind-strength and visibility, for the fishing vessels, pleasure craft and cargo ships in the seas around the British Isles.

Описание слайда:

None of the information is of the slightest use to the millions of non-seafarers who listen to it, but English people do listen to it. Why? It is an important ritual for English people. Although they don’t feel, don’t understand it, they got accustomed to it and don’t want to abandon such a nice tradition.
