Conversational Style presents a linguistic approach on how to analyze conversational style. Looking at six speakers over the course of a two-and-a-half hour Thanksgiving dinner, she analyzes the features that make up their conversational style, and in particular how these styles function in a positive manner when those style are similar to one another, and in a negative way when they are different. Tannen deliberately wrote the book to be accessible and non-technical, for appeal to both students and scholars. It continues to find course use in sociolinguistics, language and gender, and women's studies courses.
