Dear friends, it is taken from a book "I just don't know" saying difference between men and women. While reading this, I thoroughly have no idea what alignment is. I have looked it up in my dictionary ,but don't find the a definition fit.http://dictionary.cambridge.org/define.asp?key=93972&dict=CALDSociologist Erving Goffman uses the term alignment to express this aspect of framing. If you put me down, you are taking a superior alignment with respect to me. Furthermore, by showing the alignment that you take with regard to others, what you say frames you, just as you are framing what you say.
Now I really need your help, thanks in advance.
