Abstract:

In White Kids, Mary Bucholtz investigates how white teenagers use language to
display identities based on race and youth culture. Focusing on three youth
styles - preppies, hip hop fans, and nerds - Bucholtz shows how white youth
use a wealth of linguistic resources, from social labels to slang, from Valley Girl
speech to African American English, to position themselves in the school's
racialized social order. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork in a multiracial urban
California high school, the book also demonstrates how European American
teenagers talk about race when discussing interracial friendship and difference,
narrating racialized fear and conflict, and negotiating their own ethnoracial
classification. The first book to use techniques of linguistic analysis to examine
the construction of diverse white identities, it will be welcomed by researchers
and students in linguistics, anthropology, ethnic studies and education.
