Whenever the subject of literacy comes up, what often pops first into my mind is a conversation I overheard eight years ago between my son Sam and his best friend, Willie, aged six and seven, respectively: “Why don’t you trade me Many Trails for Carl Yats . . . Yes, it’s . . . Ya-strum-scrum.” “That’s not how you say it, dummy, it’s Carl Yes . . . Yes . . . oh, I don’t know.” Sam and Willie had just discovered baseball cards. Many Trails was their decoding, with the help of first-grade English p...

Sind Jungen aggressiv, individualistisch, wettbewerbsorientiert und schaffen sie Hierarchien und Ausgrenzungen in ihren Interaktionen mit Gleichaltrigen? Sind Madchen hingegen kooperativ, rucksichtsvoll und legen sie mehr Wert auf die "positive Hoflichkeit" als auf die Selbstbehauptung? Die anthropologische Studie von Marjorie Harness Goodwin aus UCLA widerlegt etablierte Vorstellungen der Entwicklungspsychologie uber genderbasierte Unterschiede im Sozialverhalten der Kinder (z.B. Maltz/Borker 1...

jola_1031 205..226 This article suggests that the theory of language socialization could benefit from adopting some key concepts originally introduced by the philosopher Edmund Husserl in the first part of the twentieth century. In particular, it focuses on Husserl’s notion of “(phenomenological) modification,” to be understood as a change in “the natural attitude” that humans have toward the phenomenal world, their own actions included. After providing examples of different kinds of modificatio...

Though the dynamics of immigrant family life has gained attention from scholars, little is known about the younger generation, often considered 'invisible'. "Translating Childhoods", a unique contribution to the study of immigrant youth, brings children to the forefront by exploring the 'work' they perform as language and culture brokers, and the impact of this largely unseen contribution. Skilled in two vernaculars, children shoulder basic and more complicated verbal exchanges for non-English s...

Linguistic anthropological theories and methods have enriched our understanding of education. Almost all education is mediated by language, and linguistic anthropologists use both precise linguistic analyses and powerful anthropological theories to describe how educational language use establishes important social relations. Because educational institutions influence processes of concern to anthropologists—including the production of differentially valued identities, the circulation and transfor...

ABSTRACTFrom Schieffelin’s (1994) perspective on code-switching and language socialization, this study investigates how a Chinese child’s code-switching between English and Chinese may have assisted his bilingual socialization in the United States, by focusing on the child’s code-switching in diverse Chinese settings and with different interlocutors across nearly one year.

This paper examines peer conflict management in a Russian preschool, a setting that is central for learning and practicing culturally-appropriate ways of conflict resolution. Conducted in a language socialization perspective, the paper examines ways in which a cultural norm of being friendly members of a group is communicated by the teachers within the context of peer conflict resolution. Teachers ...

Abstract This paper examines Korean preschool children's socialization into uses of honorifics, focusing on the role that teachers’ honorific speech practices and children's peer conflict play in this process. Unlike previous studies, which typically assumed a one-to-one relationship between honorifics and politeness or deference, the analysis of teachers’ and children's discourse in classroom settings illustrates that honorifics are indexes of a wide variety of sociocultural meanings such as pr...

An enduring question in the cultural study of psychological experience concerns how emotion may play a role in shaping moral aspects of children’s lives as they are mentored into socially preferred ways of understanding and responding to the world at hand. This article brings together approaches from psychological and linguistic anthropology to explore how cultural schemas of normativity are communicated, embodied, and enacted as children participate in day-to-day family activities and routines....

Abstract Using the theoretical framework of language socialization, this paper investigates the local contexts in which four international students were initiated into citation during their first semester in a Masters in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MA-TESOL) program. Drawing from 38 hours of observation and audiotaping in two teaching methods courses, interviews with instructors and students, and students’ texts, it situates students’ citation practices within the discourses...

Abstract In Dominica, a process of language shift from Patwa, an Afro-French creole, to varieties of English, the official language, has been ongoing over several decades. English indexes higher scales of value related to its position as the language of government, education, and formal settings, while Patwa indexes lower scales related to its position as a predominantly rural, oral, informal language. Children are generally prohibited from speaking Patwa in adult-controlled settings and increas...

Abstract This study uses the framework of space and scale to examine how bilingual Turkish heritage children in Arizona respond to conflicting scalar language hierarchies (Blommaert et al., 2005; Blommaert, 2007) they are exposed to in the bilingual worlds and spaces which they navigate. At their US elementary school, where monolingual English language practices are advocated and heritage languages such as their own Turkish language are downscaled, they use Turkish at the margins to create priva...
