Manner Of Discourse

A manner of discourse is an identifiable style of speech that is suitable for a particular type of:

  • addressee
  • social setting
  • subject matter

(English)

Here are some examples that illustrate distinctions in manners of discourse. The intended perlocutionary effect is the same, but the styles are different:

  • Participants should remain seated throughout the ceremony
  • Don’t get up
  • Sit tight
