Abstract:

Style, Identity and Literacy: English in Singapore is a qualitative study of theliteracy practices of a group of Singaporean adolescents, relating their patternsof interaction - both inside and outside the classroom - to the different levels ofsocial organization in Singaporean society (home, peer group and school).Combining field data gathered through a series of detailed interviews withavailable classroom observations, the study focuses on six adolescents fromdifferent ethnic and social backgrounds as they negotiate the learning of Englishagainst the backdrop of multilingual Singapore. This book provides socialexplanations for the difficulties and challenges these adolescents face bydrawing on current developments in sociolinguistics, literacy studies, Englishlanguage teaching and language policy.
