Conversation Tannen Analysis

221 Words1 Page
Comprehension: I can see why women would have the feeling that their husbands are not engaged in the conversation. Before reading this essay, I had no idea that men and women engaged differently in conversations. I been married for 8 years and at first my wife would always ask me to look at her when we had a conversation, but I was ok with her not making eye contact with me. As time passed we learned to adapt and it’s not an issue anymore. If we were educated on this subject at that time I bet it would have gone a lot smoother. I 'm glad I picked this topic, It explains a lot when it comes to communication.
Purpose of audience: I agree with you that Tannen is informing the readers that communication is one of the major structure in a marriage.
