Title: Language, Migration, and Identity
Subtitle: Neighborhood Talk in Indonesia
Published: 2010
Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Author: Zane Goebel
Hardback: ISBN: 9780521519915 Pages: 240 Price: U.K. £ 55.00
Abstract:

While much scholarship has been devoted to the interplay between language,
identity and social relationships, we know less about how this plays out
interactionally in diverse transient settings. Based on research in Indonesia,
this book examines how talk plays an important role in mediating social
relations in two urban spaces where linguistic and cultural diversity is
the norm and where distinctions between newcomers and old timers changes
regularly. How do people who do not share expectations about how they
should behave build new expectations through participating in conversation?

Starting from a view of language-society dynamics as enregisterment, Zane
Goebel uses interactional sociolinguistics and the ethnography of
communication to explore how language is used in this contact setting to
build and present identities, expectations and social relations. It will be
welcomed by researchers and students working in the fields of linguistic
anthropology, sociolinguistics, the anthropology of migration and Asian
studies.

- Sets out key terms from recent thinking in semiotics, linguistic
anthropology
and sociocultural theory
- Provides a new theoretical complex for looking at code-switching
- Highlights at the end of each chapter show how the discussion can inform
research in diverse and changing multilingual settings
