Whilemutual knowledge may not always be applicable style and context arealways relevant. How a listener selects potential stylistic andcontextual modes aredirectly proportionate to how successfully theycommunicate. Different listeners require different styles, as aspeaker would be unable to successfully convince a drunk friend tohand over theircar keys using a respectful-style message and a speaker would also beunsuccessful if theyused a confrontational-style during a job interview.
Contextplays a key role even when communicating with strangers for exampleif a speaker is lost while traveling and asks directions from a localresident, the speaker must comprehend the directions in the form of aspecific address or general location in order for the strangersadvice to be of any use and for successful communication to takeplace. A speakersintent may be made clear through gestures as well.
