Jewish Argument as Sociability.
Schiffrin, Deborah
Language in Society, v13 n3 p311-35 Sep 1984
Analyzes argumentative talk as a sociable function among some ethnic groups. Even though speakers repeatedly disagree, remain nonaligned with each other, and compete for interactional goods, they do so in a nonserious way, and in ways which actually display their solidarity and protect their intimacy. The cultural relativity of norms of evaluation about dispute are also demonstrated. (SL)
