    Need help conducting interview for research paper!

    Hello everybody, I have been apart of this community for almost 5 years now. Recently, my composition professor assigned us a project to research a discourse community we are apart of.

    For gaining research, we have to conduct an interview on one other member of our discourse community. If anybody is willing to lend our 5 minutes of their time it would be greatly appreciated. I have AIM / Facebook / and Skype so whichever is easiest for the individual. I'll simply be asking a few questions.

    Thanks in advance !

    Re:Need help conducting interview for research paper!

    From our good friends at Wiki......

    A discourse community:
    1. has a broadly agreed set of common public goals.
    2. has mechanisms of intercommunication among its members.
    3. uses its participatory mechanisms primarily to provide information and feedback.
    4. utilizes and hence possesses one or more genres in the communicative furtherance of its aims.
    5. in addition to owning genres, it has acquired some specific lexis.
    6. has a threshold level of members with a suitable degree of relevant content and discoursal expertise.
    Couple of questions....

    1. Will names be used?
    2. Were will this be published?
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Thanks for the quick reply !

    1) In theory, I would like to quote whoever I interview in my research paper, but if they are not up for that then names will be taken out of the equation.

    2) This will be published strictly for my Composition 1 class.
