This extends to the omission of the letter itsel in such a way as to suit the context given.

The tragicomic vision is one of the interests of Anton Chekhov, the Russian dramatist who longs to portray and present it authentically and honestly in his play the Three Sisters. It is the realistic vision of life which includes in it the tragic and comic sides of man's life, especially modern man's life. Being a realist, Chekhov is one of those dramatists who perceive life as a mixture of tragedy and comedy. This realization represents the realistic vision of life. For such an end, he wrote plays of mixed moods in which he combines two genres of tragedy and comedy. This form of dramatic writing is called tragicomedy that Chekhov adopts in his play. Believing that the comic and ridiculous can become an effective means of expressing the serious, in other words the tragic. For that, he includes in his play tragicomic scenes that include comic characters and situations as an effective technique for such purpose. The paper aims to deal with that.

A Phonological and Sociolinguistic Analysis of Different Utterances Produced by Some Professional People in Ramadi

Dr. Muslih Shwaysh Ahmed; Ayad Hammad Ali

Anbar University Journal of Languages & Literature, 2010, Volume 2, Issue 2, Pages 516-536
DOI: 10.37654/aujll.2010.64068

A present study is an attempt to analyze the speech of eight persons working in different professions in Ramadi city and the surrounding rural areas. They are an Imam of the mosque, a teacher, a physician, a taxi- driver, a grocer, a farmer, a worker, and a butcher. The speech of those people is analyzed phonologically in terms of voice quality and the level of pitch, while sociolinguistically in terms of style of speech being formal, or informal; or polite or impolite. The voice quality helps in deciding the speaker’s identity of being rural or urban; snooty or nice because the voice quality may be harsh, cheery, creaky, coarse, etc. Thus, the fact that the voice quality of the speaker reveals his identity has been proved. Studying the characteristics of voice quality and the pitch of the voice leads to knowing the speaker’s speech as formal or informal, polite or impolite. This gives us a clear evidence that there is a symmetric relation between phonetics-phonology and sociolinguistics as far as the speech is concerned.
