non-denom. church ''register''

I posted a request for information on church ''register'' on 3/13 and it
was brought to my attention by Mr. Joseph Frost that it might help to
clarify what denomination of church I'm using as a reference. I am
looking for non-denominational church ''register'' information,
specifically ''modern'' christian-based churches, but not orthodox or
catholic churches.

April Gentry

Original query:
I am studying what I call *Christian Language*. It's really a
register that people speak in a church, or on a Sunday morning sermon
on the t.v. It's bleeding with metaphors and interpretations of the
Bible. I haven't been able to find any references to this register.
Any and all input will be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail me.

is on any sources about language policy/planning in Burma(Mynamr) that
has taken place in the 1990's.

Thank you,
