Interviews have long been used as a method in applied linguistics for the investigation of an extraordinary array of phenomena. In quantitative research, interviews have been used to generate insights into matters as varied as cognitive processes in language learning, lexical inferencing, motivation, language attitudes, program evaluation, language classroom pedagogy, language proficiency, and learner autonomy (see e.g. Brown 1988; Dornyei 2007; Gass and Mackey 2007). In qualitative research, in...

Abstract This paper examines how Northern Thai (Muang) children are socialized into the discourses and practices of respect in school, a process that indexically links Standard Thai to images of polite and respectful Thai citizenship. Focusing on the socialization of politeness particles, the paper examines how cultural models of conduct are taken up, positioned and reinterpreted in local discourses and classroom activities in a kindergarten classroom. The analysis explores not only how respectf...

In this article literacies are defined as a set of interconnected signifying practices interpreted by semiotic ideologies, that is, cultural beliefs about signs. This approach integrated with a language socialization approach to literacy provides a way to go beyond the reproduction of the normative social scientific categories of religious or secular literacies, orality and literacy, tradition and modernity. The focus of the article is the literacy practices of Hasidic Jews, an example of a nonl...

In this article, the authors use and further elaborate a cultural modeling framework to juxtapose two distinct yet analogous literacy practices: 1The out-of-school practice of translating and interpreting across languages, or “para-phrasing” 2The cross-disciplinary and school-based practice of paraphrasing or summarizing written texts Data are from field notes based on two years of ethnographic observations conducted in the homes and classrooms of 18 fifth-, sixth-, and seventh-grade students; t...
In this article, I present a language socialization approach to the study of Qur’anic schooling. Integrating insights from holistic study of the community and the institution, analysis of video recordings of Qur’anic school interaction, and video playback and interviews with community members, I describe the apprenticeship of Fulbe children into Qur’anic orality and literacy as a gradual transfer of responsibility for rendering the sacred text. I describe the organization of Qur’anic schooling a...

Abstract In this article we examine the complexities of immigrant children's role as translators and linguistic mediators between their parents and their teachers during parent-teacher conferences. In our analyses, we first examine the linguistic structure of teachers’ narratives about the children, and then look at how children construct their moral and social identities as students in their translations of these narratives, and how parents respond to their children's translations. We found tha...

This paper considers how global practices of English on the Internet intersect with local practices of English in the territorial or national sphere in constructing the language experiences of immigrant learners. Using a multi-contextual approach to language socialization, this paper examines the social and discursive practices in a Chinese/English bilingual chat room and how this Internet chat room provides an additional context of language socialization for two teenage Chinese immigrants in th...

▪ Abstract While continuing to uphold the major aims set out in the first generation of language socialization studies, recent research examines the particularities of language socialization processes as they unfold in institutional contexts and in a wide variety of linguistically and culturally heterogeneous settings characterized by bilingualism, multilingualism, code-switching, language shift, syncretism, and other phenomena associated with contact between languages and cultures. Meanwhile ne...

With the goal of illuminating how identity and cognition are in tension in classroom activity, we examine how one second-language learner answers questions in a mainstream second-grade classroom. To understand this learner's participation, we analyze two conflicting “language games.” We find the second-language learner often is adept at “passing” as knowing, but that he achieves this identity-preserving expertise at the expense of an understanding of classroom lessons.

This ethnographic case study examines a bilingual child's academic socialization in both formal and informal academic communities. The study follows a high-achieving, bilingual student in a public US elementary school, who paradoxically is seen as a slow learner in her Korean-American Sunday school. From the academic socialization and community of practice perspectives, 360 contextual, interactional, and interview events gathered from both communities over the course of one year are analyzed. Th...

This article explores how Confucius Institute teachers and U.S. students use language to index qualities of Chinese people and culture. The study draws on the model of “linguistic fact” to argue that students' and teachers' contextualized use of language occurs in relation to their different yet naturalized assumptions about a commonly shared social world, one they define largely in terms of market consumerism. The article offers the concept of linguistic hegemony to aid in understanding the mul...

Language Socialization Across Learning Spaces Jin Sook Lee and Mary Bucholtz 1. Introduction Learning to think, act, and speak like an expert in specific physical, temporal, cultural, and ideological spaces is a necessity to function successfully in any community. A primary way that humans become socialized to act and interact in culturally appropriate ways is through the use of language. Language socialization (LS) refers to the process by which individuals acquire, reproduce, and transform the...
