Abstract:

Vernacular Palaver highlights the continuing appeal of local identities for
participants in social networks where communication occurs in languages
that are not mother tongues. Using examples from video film, popular
literature, religious activity and educational practice in West Africa, it
demonstrates the importance of notions of localness and locality for
speakers of non-native languages, despite the growing prominence of global
languages in their lives.
