Analyze a problematic relationship you have had or one you have observed. (If you don’t wish to share a real relationship, you may use one from a book or movie.) Try to create a pragmatic description of the communication interaction that took place. That is, describe it as if it were a game; perhaps a game that only one of you seems to know the rules.
Name the game, list the ground rules for the game, and try to sketch out the “plays” in the game – that is the repeated patterns of “moves” that the individuals act out.
What insights does seeing this as a game give you? Now that you have identified the game, what suggestions can you make for improving the relationship?
( PS: do not use perfect grammar, make some mistake and do not use high level sentence. thx)
