This book is a sociolinguistic study of children's talk and how they
interact with one another and their teachers in multilingual, multicultural
and multiethnic schools. It is based on tape recordings and ethnographic
observations of majority Greek and minority Turkish-speaking children at an
Athens primary school. It offers the reader a unique look into the ways in
which children draw upon their rich interactional histories and share,
transform and recontextualize linguistic and other semiotic resources in
circulation to construct play frames and explore, adopt, resist available
as well as novel social roles and identities. Drawing on ethnographically
informed approaches to discourse, the book shows the ways in which verbal
phenomena such as teasing, joking, language play, music making and chanting
can provide a productive locus for the study of the negotiation of social
identities and roles at school. This book will be of interest to scholars,
researchers and students of sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, cultural
studies, and multicultural education. It will also be of interest to
anthropologists and sociologists.
