Title: Bilingualism and Social Relations
Subtitle: Turkish Speakers in North Western Europe
Edited By: J. Normann Jørgensen

Studies of the multilingual practices of Turkish speaking adolescents in North Western Europe. The speakers use their different languages for a wide range of purposes: getting their way, creating a comfortable atmosphere, saving face, being polite, showing respect, showing disrespect, scolding, and in many other ways to administer their social relations. The skills demonstrated by the young speakers are almost never taken into account by the majority societies.
