Abstract:

How language shapes and is shaped by identity is a key topic withinsociolinguistics. An individual's identity is constituted through a varietyof different factors, including the social, linguistic, cultural and ethniccontexts. In this book, Philip Riley looks at these issues against thetheoretical background of the sociology of knowledge, and ethnolinguistics,asking how we learn who we are and how social identities are negotiated.The idea of 'the foreigner' is central to this account, yet traditionalviews of the role of being socially 'other' largely neglect the role oflanguage. Riley bridges this gap by examining problematic aspects ofmultilingual identities, with particular reference to the notions of'ethos' and the 'communicative virtues'.

This engaging analysis of language and social identity will be essentialreading for students of sociolinguistics at undergraduate and postgraduatelevels.
