You are also required to write one or two paragraphs drawing out the major differences between the two texts.
Please indicate the total number of words you have used at the end of your assignment.
The written text (Text 1) and face-to-face conversation (Text 2) below are both on the topic of the UK Census, which takes place every ten years in the United Kingdom. Read both texts and perform a comparative register analysis. You may find it helpful to refer to the ‘Scheme for register analysis’ at the end of Unit 8.
Transcriptions of both texts are enclosed as Appendices and for ease of reference the line numbers given in brackets. The line numbers and bibliographic references are not included in the word count.
