Abstract:

Rural-urban migration has been going on in China since the early 1980s,
resulting in complicated sociolinguistic environments. Migrant workers are the
backbone of China's fast growing economy, and yet little is known about their
and their children's identities - who they are, who they think they are, and who
they are becoming. The study of their linguistic practice can reveal a lot about
their identity construction as well as about transitions in Chinese society and
the (re)formation of social structure at the macro level. In this book, Dong Jie
presents a wide range of ethnographic data which are organised around a scalar
framework. She argues that three scales - linguistic communication,
metapragmatic discourse, and public discourse - interact in complex and
multiple ways.
