Summary:   SOME TIME AGO I POSTED A QUERY (LINGUIST 14.1401) REGARDING SOCIOLINGUISTICS VIDEOS PRODUCED BY INSIGHT MEDIA, ASKING IF ANYONE HAD ANY EXPERIENCE WITH ANY OF THEM AND COULD EVALUATE THEM. I HAVEN'T POSTED A SUMMARY TILL NOW BECAUSE I WAS HOPING FOR MORE RESPONSES. BUT I HAVE GIVEN UP WAITING.

IT APPEARS THAT THE ONLY PERSON ACTUALY FAMILIAR WITH ANY OF THE VIDOES IS SERAN DOGANCAY-AKTUNA, WHO SENT THE FOLLOWING COMMENTARY:

I HAVE USED THE * ONES IN MY LANGUAGE AND SOCIETY CLASS AND I THINK THEY ARE ALL QUITE USEFUL TO SUPPLEMENT TEXTBOOKS AND CLASS DISCUSSIONS. I DO NOT HAVE A PARTICULAR PREFERENCE AND CANNOT TELL YOU WHICH ONE OUT OF THE THREE YOU LIST FOR EACH CATEGORY IS MY FAVORITE.
YET, BOTH MY STUDENTS AND I LIKE THE MORE CURRENT VIDEOS (SOMME OF THE ONES OUR LIBRARY HAS DATE BACK TO THE 80S) AND THOSE THAT ARE MADE FOR AN ACADEMIC AUDIENCE RATHER THAN FOR DIVERSITY TRAINING IN THE WORKPLACE. SO, MY ADVICE WOULD BE FOR YOU TO CHECK THE TARGETED AUDIENCE BEFORE PURCHASING THEM.

INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION
* CROSS CULTURAL COMMUNICATION
NEGOTIATING CULTURAL COMMUNICATION

* MEN, WOMEN AND LANGUAGE
* HE SAID, SHE SAID: GENDER, LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION
GENDER AND COMMUNICATION: SHE TALKS, HE TALKS

PARALANGUAGE AND PROXEMICS
* NONVERBAL COMUNICATION
EYE CONTACT AND KINESICS

I ALSO RECEIVED A MESSAGE FROM ALICE HORNING REGARDING THE STORY OF ENGLISH VIDEOS.

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE PEOPLE WHO TOOK THE TIME TO RESPOND.
