Abstract:

This book presents six new studies on identity construction in the speech
of older adolescents and young adults learning French. It takes a
sociolinguistic approach to acquisition. First language sociolinguistic
research has shown that identity construction is particularly intense
during adolescence and young adulthood, and language use has been found to
be an especially key resource in this dynamic construction. The
contributors examine the language practices of L2, L3 and L4 speakers in
multilingual and multicultural societies in Ireland, Canada, Belgium and
France in order to demonstrate their use in identity construction. Several
contexts of language acquisition for multilingual speakers are examined and
compared, including formal and naturalistic settings for acquisition and
learning. The book also investigates the speech of learners at
upper-intermediate and advanced stages of acquisition of French to provide
a holistic view of the way individuals use the language resources available
to them to stake a claim to a new multilingual identity in their target
language networks. The papers in this book combine qualitative and
quantitative data on French speech and the context in which it occurs to
provide detailed pictures of the co-construction of identity and complex
speech patterns by multilingual speakers of French.
