Abstract: The study reported in this paper is part of a larger project that investigates nurse-elderly client communication in Hong Kong. This preliminary study has examined the types and relative frequencies of speech act usage in female nurse-female client interaction and female nurse-male client interaction. Examination of the use of speech act as manifestations of strategic process has shown to be very useful in understanding gender and discourse situated in the broader context of health care communication in Hong Kong, and elsewhere.
