Abstract:

This book deals with speech representation in Greek adolescents' storytelling
and investigates how members of different communities of practice present
themselves and other characters as interactional protagonists through the
stories they tell. The work puts forth a dynamic approach that examines
(direct) speech representation at the local and the broader socio-cultural
context in which it is embedded. The concept of community of practice
accounts for direct speech variation, and direct speech is seen as the
linguistic manifestation of shared repertoire of particular communities of
practice. The book combines qualitative with quantitative methods of study
and brings together relevant theories of speech representation, narrative
analysis and self-presentation.

'Sofia Lampropoulou's beautifully-exemplified Direct Speech, Self-
presentation and Communities of Practice makes interesting contributions to
the fields of narrative, the nature of talk, and the construction of gender.
Commendably clear in its methodology, it also constitutes an excellent
example of contemporary empirical research in linguistics.' Jane Sunderland,
Department of Linguistics and English Language, Lancaster University, UK
