Abstract:

This sociolinguistic study of the linguistic practices of bilingual
couples describes the conditions, processes and results of private
language contact. It is based on a unique corpus of more than 20 hours
of private conversations between partners in bilingual
marriages. Adding to its breadth of coverage, these private
conversations are supplemented with larger public discourses about
international couplehood. The volume thus offers a corpus-driven
investigation of the ways in which ideologies of gender, nationality
and immigration mediate linguistic performances in private
cross-cultural communication. The author embraces
social-constructionist, feminist and postmodern approaches to second
language learning, multilingualism and cross-cultural
communication. In contrast to other titles in the field which have
focused almost exclusively on the socialization of bilingual children,
this book explores what it means to one's sense of self to become
socialized into a second langua! ge and culture as a late bilingual.
