Claire Banner ACF Abstract FY12

Profanity, Slang, and Professional Language in the Writing Center

East Central Writing Centers Association

This session will discuss the concept of professional language as it applies to consultants, the writing center, and interaction with students. We will present ways to use types of language generally viewed as less professional in order to build rapport and promote understanding beyond the realms of strictly academic discourse.
