“Members of such groups can be of different nationalities, ages, and occupations, and can differ quite considerably in their economic circumstances and educational backgrounds. They come together because of a focus on their hobby or recreational preference.”(Paragraph 15, Line 3)

The reason why I found this quote intriguing was because of the truthfulness he presented in this quote he says people from all over the nation are in different discourse groups about different global awareness or just basic hobbies 

“My current hobbies are bird-watching and butterfly-watching, and I belong to various associations that support these similar but not identical activities.” (Paragraph 19, Line 3)

I found this quote interesting because I can relate to swales, he’s in several discourse groups and I’m also several such as people who have an interest in graphic design and people who love to make delicious chocolate-covered treats
