New Language Constructs

(as applied to funeral directors and life coaches)


The project investigates the ways the grammatical structures of language frame our understanding of contextually sensitive moments. Through a series of workshops, with the funeral director Nicky Dunphy and the life coach Phoebus Ebbini, highly specific new forms of grammar were developed for their practices which inherited their personal perspectives on funerals and life coaching. The new grammars are applied to real conversation transcripts collected during a funeral arrangement and a life coaching session, forming the script re-enacted by Nicky and Phoebus.
