Abstract:

While much scholarship has been devoted to the interplay between language,identity and social relationships, we know less about how this plays outinteractionally in diverse transient settings. Based on research in Indonesia,this book examines how talk plays an important role in mediating socialrelations in two urban spaces where linguistic and cultural diversity isthe norm and where distinctions between newcomers and old timers changesregularly. How do people who do not share expectations about how theyshould behave build new expectations through participating in conversation?

Starting from a view of language-society dynamics as enregisterment, ZaneGoebel uses interactional sociolinguistics and the ethnography ofcommunication to explore how language is used in this contact setting tobuild and present identities, expectations and social relations. It will bewelcomed by researchers and students working in the fields of linguisticanthropology, sociolinguistics, the anthropology of migration and Asianstudies.

- Sets out key terms from recent thinking in semiotics, linguisticanthropologyand sociocultural theory- Provides a new theoretical complex for looking at code-switching- Highlights at the end of each chapter show how the discussion can informresearch in diverse and changing multilingual settings
