Notable Studies Examples[edit]

There are a lot of examples of research that uses ethnography of communication, but none of them are explained. It would be helpful to include the significance and implications of these studies so the readers can see how the ethnography of communication can be used to study people and their social and cultural practices/beliefs. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jmai1026 (talkcontribs) 18:56, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

more references for definition[edit]

I think at the beginning of the page, the definition of the Ethnography of communication, needs more references. Although it is detailed and clear enough to make a definition, I don't know where does the definition come from, is it abstracted from some books or scholar works? More references can be more reliable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Clairechen0804 (talkcontribs) 21:27, 8 August 2014 (UTC)


Notable studies should be expanded[edit]

In my opinion, the notable studies section should be expanded more. Furthermore, new sections need to be created. S-P-E-A-K-I-N-G model by Hymes or Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis needs to be explained. The definition is very concrete and clear but citation should be improved. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ssopark (talkcontribs) 18:57, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your comment. Sapir-Whorf has it's own section in the Linguistic Relativity page so I will add a short sentence about the hypothesis at the end of the Intro and link the sentence to the appropriate page. Jyk7 (talk) 04:20, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
