Abstract:

The linguistic study of workplace language is a new and exciting area
of research. This book explores the expression of power in a New
Zealand workplace through examination of 52 everyday interactions
between four women and their colleagues. The main focus of this
research is the expression of three types of "control acts", i.e.,
directives, requests and advice. The women include two managers who
demonstrate an interactive participative style of management. They
tend to minimise rather than exert power, although their status is
still evident in their speech.

The study is original in its combination of a quantitative and a
qualitative approach, as well as in its combination of a detailed
categorisation of head acts and an analysis of context and role
relationships. Through the design of the study and the methodology
used, the results which are brought forward challenge earlier research
both on power and control acts. The data analyzed is drawn from the
Wellington Language in the Workplace Project.
