"The Proper Way To Pray"; Description of a Korean-American Youth Service Prayer.
Stone, Holly
Working Papers in Educational Linguistics, v8 n2 p89-105 Fall 1992
A youth pastor's prayer was analyzed using techniques of microanalysis to reveal sociocompetencies required of Korean American teenagers in a youth church service. It was found that the markers of context within a service included changes in discourse, prosody, posture, and body movements. The teenagers, who with the youth pastor responded to and created the context, strove to maintain "proper" prayer behavior even with the intrusion of a cat. (Author)
