Socialization of Good Eating Habits through Deixis in a Preschool.
Han, Namhee
A study was conducted in a Korean language preschool in Koreatown, Los Angeles, California which used student-teacher interactions to examine how a teacher's use of deixis socializes children about what constitutes good eating practices and what cultivates them. The data for this paper came from a larger study of language socialization practices, specifically looking at how children are introduced to local ideologies of appropriate social self in the Korean-American preschool. The paper first introduces the research site, then briefly goes over four different types of discourse strategies used in socializing children into certain social rules, and discusses the last type with transcribed video data that relates to the topic of the paper, teacher's use of deixis. It explains that there are four classes in the preschool, more or less corresponding to the age of the children, and it states that four different discourse strategies employed by the Korean preschool teachers were observed: statement of rules; rhetorical questions; teasing; and personalized statement.
