Abstract:

Linguists have become increasingly interested in examining how class
culture is socially constructed and maintained through spoken
language. Julie Lindquist's examination of the linguistic ethnography
of a working-class bar in Chicago is an important and original
contribution to the field. She examines how regular patrons argue
about political issues in order to create a group identity centered
around political ideology. She also shows how their political
arguments are actually a rhetorical genre, one which creates a
delicate balance between group solidarity and individual identity, as
well as a tenuous and ambivalent sense of class identity.
