Hi Everybody,

I am carrying out what is essentially ethnomethodological conversation
analytic research in the domain of air traffic control. I would be
grateful to hear from anyone involved in, interested in, or
knowledgeable about similar research (not necessarily from a CA
perspective) in this domain. Apart from ATC-aircrew communications, I am
also collecting audiovisual data on copresent ATC team communications
(typically executive controller & planning controller)  and audio data
on physically distributed controller communications, i.e. between
controllers located in adjacent ATC facilities & centres.

While my main aim is to treat technology supported/mediated human
communication within the domain of ATC from a CA perspective, I am also
interested in studying the language of ATC as a controlled language.

Thank you,
Paul

Subject:  Letter Use within the English Language

I'm looking for the frequency of letter use within the English language. I've
been able to find specific examples (ie., the distribution  in Tale of Two
Cities or the Bible), but not a general answer.

What is the accepted general answer to this question by people who study
language and how is that question asked such that it is general?

TIA,
