Apologies and Compliments

single channel video (7 minutes and 32 seconds)

Apologies and Compliments stems from a session of the Discourse and Rhetoric Group, Loughborough University, UK, in which the academic members were played excerpts from other episodes of Englishes in which someone is complimented on, 
or apologizes for, their English. The academics can be heard to analyze these apologies and compliments. The visuals are taken from the scanned annotated documents used during the session.
