Mod5 Assignment

I'm looking at writing a combined Inter Cultural Communication and Critical Discourse Analysis 5000 word paper for Mod 5: probably a CDA of the listening materials that go with the IELTS book I'm using at work, with particular reference to the emphasis the materials place on standard English with RP, and the cultural style passed on thereby. Or something.

Anyway, here's the start of a reading list culled from some google-scholaring just now. Major et al (2005) looks like a good starting point.
